Signage for The Village Pet - Manitoba Pine

Nathan Carlson

 First, the layout.  I used a projector to enlarge the logo.  Grain selection was crucial here, since local spruce has a ton of knots.  I had to lay it out as best as I could to avoid big knots on the logo.

 With the layout finished, the router was used freehand to "hog out" most of the stock to be removed.  The horizontal lines across the entire plane are for the router base to rest on,  these are easily removed by hand later.  Now the chiseling!

 All it needs now is a coat of paint.

The Village Pet - coming soon!

Nathan Carlson

Derek and Mike from The Village Pet asked us to come up with a reclaimed wood cash desk for their new pet food store at #4 - 222 Osborne St. Winnipeg MB, Canada- "The Village Pet".  Opening in late March.  Here's what we came up with.  More photos in the Gallery.

Manitoba Walnut

Nathan Carlson

When we heard that this giant walnut tree in Brandon, Manitoba had reached the end of it's lifespan and was being cut down, we started to get all of our ducks in a row to ensure that this beautiful wood became lumber rather than firewood.

We hauled the logs to Creekside Log Products in St. Pierre, MB, Canada. 

The 'Ol Beaver Canada Jointer

Nathan Carlson

Bought this circa 1953 Beaver Canada 6" jointer from a fella on kijiji who had it rusting away in his garage,  Belonged to his father.  Weighs a ton for it's size!  Re-packed the bearings, replaced the motor...turned out to be a real work horse.  A very useful and dependable machine.  They don't make-em like this anymore!
