Announcement   Welcome to Simply Rooted Woodshop!
We specialise in making unique handmade decorative and useful wood turned items. We source our raw material from reclaimed or salvaged city trees as opposed to obtaining logs from commercial logging operations. This provides a diversity of raw material, and ensures that city/country trees are given a second lease on life. All of the finishes we use are 100% natural, organic and food safe. The combination of using reclaimed wood and 100% natural finishes allows the company to be sustainable and environmentally friendly.

We also love doing custom work. If you have a specific idea or want something made from a tree on your property or specific piece of wood, please contact me and we can start working together.

Please look around our shop. We have many pieces not yet finished, but need a bit of inspiration. If you have an idea in mind that you do not see represented in our shop, please reach out to us. We would be happy to make your vision a reality.

If you live in the Kitchener-Waterloo area, we are willing to arrange a meeting for you to receive your item and save on the shipping. Please let us know prior to your purchase, so we can adjust the shipping costs accordingly.

If you would like to stay connected with us, please follow along with us on our journey:

The bowl is a rare live edge bowl with lots of character. Packaging was excellent and I am so happy to have purchased it. Shipping was fast and safe. Thank you for making it.

Beautiful wood and so useful. Handmade wooden utensils really add more pleasure to the art of cooking. Every day I use these tongs I'll know that one person hand crafted them to be a useful, appealing, and personal tool for my kitchen needs.

About

Skillfully handcrafted from locally reclaimed wood.

Simply Rooted Woodshop is a space for us to share the hand-turned wooden creations that Windekind has been making for the past two years. 95% of what he makes is turned on a wood lathe - bowls (both functional and decorative), salt and pepper mills, pens, cedar mushrooms, Christmas ornaments, art pieces.

The name "Simply Rooted" speaks to our appreciation for where we find the raw material (i.e. wood) and is one of the cornerstones of how Windekind wants to make his product. The products are made from wood that has been acquired from "reclaimed" (fallen, dead, or generally discarded) wood. No trees are cut specifically for making the products. Also, the wood is very locally sourced and we want to keep it that way. We are officially registered as an Ontario Wood partner, and certify that our products meet Ontario Wood designation, which means we commit to using a minimum of 75% native Ontario wood species in our production. We intentionally want to focus on the beauty found in our own backyards.

Wholesale orders welcomed. Please contact me for details.

Custom orders are always welcomed. If you have a tree in your backyard that has fallen, died or will need to be removed for other reasons and would like a memory of that tree, please contact me and I will work with you in the design and making of the piece you would like.

We use a 100% pure natural food safe tung or polymerized linseed oil to finish each bowl. These oils penetrate deeply into the wood and harden over time. This provides a very good finish that is easy to maintain.

All items will be shipped through Canada post regular/expresspost mail and will include a tracking number. Items will be insured for the cost of the product purchased and will include delivery notification. If you need it shipped by another carrier, there may be additional charges.

Shipping rates within Canada are calculated based me shipping the item to Victoria, BC from Waterloo, Ontario. Shipping rates for US customers are based on me shipping the item to Texas from Waterloo, Ontario. Depending on your location, shipping rates will be less than what is quoted. If you would like to know the exact shipping costs for an item, please feel free to contact me.

Once a purchase is paid and cleared, the item will ship within 3-5 business days, unless otherwise stated in the listing.

I will email you to let you know that your item has been dropped off at the post office and is on its way.

For international buyers, packages may take 1-3 weeks to arrive due to potential delays at customs. Insurance, import fees and taxes will be paid by the purchaser.

Finally, if you are a local buyer and are interested in scheduling a pick up in the Kitchener-Waterloo region, please message me and I will be happy to refund your shipping costs.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to love the item you purchased and I try to give as much detail in the item description and through the pictures to ensure that what you see is what you get. If for some reason you do not love your purchase, please contact me within 24 hours of receiving it so that we can work something out.

If you do decide to return the item, contact me within 24 hours of receipt. The item must be in its original packaging and condition. Items damaged in shipping will not be refunded. Return shipping expense is the responsibility of the buyer.

Damage claims must be taken up with the shipping carrier. If the item arrives damaged, please take photos, keep the original packaging so that an insurance claim can be made. All items are insured which will cover the cost of the item if damage does occur. The damaged item should only be disposed off when the claim process is complete. I will work with you to ensure that everything is to your satisfaction.
Additional policies and FAQs
I love playing around with new designs and ideas. If you are interested in exploring an item or type of wood you don't see, message me so we can talk about a custom order. Please keep in mind that wood takes some time to work with, so custom orders may or may not have a quick turnaround time (depending on my inventory).
