Announcement   In my shop, you will find custom made reclaimed wood artwork. All of my work is built and designed by myself, the artist. If you desire a custom piece, just send me an email and I will get you a quote and time frame for completion. There is usually a 4 to 6 week lead time to build a custom order. If you need it sooner I will do my best to accommodate your time frame.

What makes my artwork so unique is that I am always on the hunt for unique types of wood that will create an impressive piece. I especially enjoy working with wood that is bursting with character. There are no faux finishes in the world that can duplicate the colors and textures that Mother Nature creates, 95% to 100% of the colors you see on my art pieces have not been stained, what you see is the natural color of the wood. When wood is aged for 80 to 100 years, it turns naturally dark in color.
The darker brown natural woods were those aged within a barn, while grey boards have been weathered outside.
When you are buying one of my pieces, you are also buying a piece of Pioneer history, when power tools were almost non-existent.

You can also contact me by phone or email if you have any questions.

When I was looking for artwork to go above my king size bed....all I knew was that I wanted it to be made from reclaimed wood...but I wanted more than that. After spending a few hours looking at different pieces on Etsy, I came across pieces made by Craig Forget. His pieces were not just wood put together in a square or pattern...but truly, works of art. I contacted Craig about the size I needed, 81" x 30". He replied immediately and he said he could make the pice I wanted exactly so it would fit over the bed. I sent him a photo of the space above the bed and he photoshopped the artwork above the bed and sent it to me, so I could see exactly how it would look. Amazing....I was sold. The piece was shipped in 3 layers of protective board. The photos don't do it justice...it's just beautiful.

This piece is fantastic! We had some custom color requests and size requests, and he did a great job in accommodating the changes and getting it to us very quickly!

I just completed this one of a kind piece. It is my impression of a circuit board art piece.
This is a completely new design and it is available to ship out right away.

About

Quality Meets Environment!

Hi My name is Craig Forget and I am a reclaimed wood artist

I feel that I am part of the large art movement that has been growing in the Detroit and Windsor area, it is great to be part of this movement. It is also great to be able to express myself through art. I am in it for the long haul, I believe in producing the most unique art pieces with the most unique wood that I can find. I always feel that it is the old, reclaimed wood that makes my pieces unique.


I have been influenced by woodworking from a very young age and recently I have found my true passion for building unique artwork and furniture out of reclaimed barn wood. What I love about the materials that I work with is that you never know what types of wood you are going to find in the local barns that range from 80 to 200 years of age. You could say I am like a kid in a candy store.

I have been working as a full time finish carpenter for the past 20 years. In addition to my reclaimed woodwork, I also create fireplace mantels and other custom pieces for customers. I am a true master carpenter who was taught by season veterans of the craft.

Every piece is built as if I were building it for myself.
