Announcement   Welcome to Ashwurks!

I have been making end-grain and long-grain cutting boards for many years and I sell them at several local farmers markets in my area.

In the beginning, I was observing my furniture making husband throwing pieces of wood out that he didn't have need for. I asked him to show me how to make something out of the scraps. He taught me how to make traditional long-grain cutting boards but I had always loved the look and durability of end-grain. I learned how to make end-grain and my business took off. My husband recently retired and now helps me put it all together - a wonderful team effort.

My products are all made of Canadian White Ash (thus the name of the shop). White Ash is wonderful to work with and grows right here in Nova Scotia, Canada. I never use dyes so all the patterns and variations of color are natural to Ash.


Thank you for visiting our shop. We love visitors :-}

About

Ashwurks Kitchen Accessories

Donna started making cutting boards to use up the left over pieces that her husband, Steve couldn’t use for his cabinetry and furniture business. Too much beautiful wood was being thrown away so she made cutting boards as Thank You gifts for the customers who ordered Steve’s kitchens, and of course they also found their way into the homes of friends and family.

Steve showed her how to make simple long grain boards, then her artistic instincts kicked in and she started figuring out how to make end grain products. She set up a table at local craft fairs and then set up shop at the Halifax Seaport Farmers Market, “the rest is history” as they say…

Donna has an extensive background in customer service and relations and has been working with the public for about 30 years. She thoroughly enjoys meeting and chatting with customers from all over the world as they stop at her table at the market
