About PaulsFineWoodworking

On Etsy since 2015

Seamless joinery, natural beauty and exquisite custom designs. Visit my website.

Paul’s work is known for its masterful design, seamless joinery and liquid-smooth finish. He has designed a variety of limited-production pieces including Jewelry/Keepsake/Multi/use Boxes as well as Home Entertainment Centers
Paul has been producing custom works and accessories since 1977. He is a self-taught woodworking hobbyist and still works alone in his one-man woodshop.

"I make things of wood that I'd like to have myself. Functional pieces that are quiet, peaceful, and a pleasure to touch and look at. My approach emphasizes select materials, structural integrity and utility. The things I make may be for others, but how I make them is for me."
"I strive for designs and methods that improve the product’s function and appearance. My finishes are hand rubbed applications to enhance the wood’s natural beauty."

This approach, I believe, was at one time fundamental. In a modern age when the emphasis in most products is on good looks that last only a few years until the product needs replacement—a time of instant gratification in a throw-away society—I try in all aspects of my work and personal life to espouse and promote enduring durability and beauty.

Shop policies

My wood products are a simple and elegant design with practical functionality, and fully handcrafted.
I make affordable handmade Jewelry and Keepsake boxes that are highly crafted and beautiful.

"Often I’ll conceive a project just because it’s something I want to do for myself and not because I think it will sell. Most woodworkers don’t allow themselves this freedom."

I have very strict standards for my work and I will never sell a piece that does not meet all of my standards. My products are built to last, and to become heirlooms.

I use primarily Cherry, Curly Maple, Walnut, Purple heart, Wenge and Bubinga.
I carefully select pieces of wood with unique grain.

All of my work is done without the use of man made wood

I do not use any Veneers, dyes or stains, the natural beauty of the woods is allowed to shine through.

My wife Cairn and I reside in the very small town of Souris, Manitoba Canada.

Thank You
Paul Gignac
