About

History and Heritage

Welcome to my MRMancrafts Etsy Store!
I'm glad you have taken the time to check it out.

A little about me and my products:

I am blessed to have both a heritage of wood working, and a source for wood in the family.
One grandfather was an avid carpenter who made beautiful works for friends and family.
My other grandfather immigrated to Alberta as a child, and his family farm has passed now to my father, and is the source of all my authentic barn boards.

As buildings are taken down, the wood is gathered and stored for use on the projects you see in my shop. Some of the buildings, and wood contained there-in, are approaching a century old.

When I am working in my shop creating a new piece, I feel a connection to the history and heritage of my family. I stand on the shoulders of giants. Although both grandfathers are gone now, I feel connected to them through my work.
I was inspired to try wood working by my mother's father, Lloyd. We had several of his pieces in our home growing up. His work was simple but elegant. I didn't fully appreciate the quality of his work until I tried to replicate it. I wish I had him here now. His insights and wisdom live on in his work.
I have a passion to work with Barn Wood because of my other grandfather, Richard. When I hold the wood for another piece in my hands, I have a direct connection to the farm and landscape that he established. The rustic nature and tone to my pieces arise from the landscape they once inhabited in their previous form. My thoughts are of the quiet conviction, and stalwart character, of a man who lived off the land. I am thankful for him, and the inspiration, he still provides.

I love to work with old wood. The character and grain of each piece. The weathering on the items you see is natural. The wood has endured frigid winters and blazing summers. Only time can give it character like this. Much of the wood is first cut and quarter sawn. What we consider premium lumber was used to make grain sheds a hundred years ago.

Please have a look at what is available, if you would like a commission or custom piece, please contact me. I would love to discuss your ideas.

Thanks for your interest.
Welcome Home.

    I've been working with wood in various forms for about 17 years now. It's a hobby and a lifestyle for me. I love to work with old wood. It's cool to think that a piece of lumber that was a barn stall yesterday, is now a heritage piece in your home.

Welcome to my shop. I'm glad you stopped by.

Take a look around and see what I have available.

If you see something, but would like to customize it, or if you have an idea that you would like created, please contact me. I would love to hear from you.

All the lumber I use is locally sourced. Our Family Farm provides wood as the buildings are repaired or replaced.

The aging on the pieces I use is natural. As is the character and distressing you will see on various pieces.
