It all started…

…in 2017 with a determined 20-something lad (that’s me!) and his 20-something wife (that’s Toni!), and their vision to build something a little different. They wanted to make custom carpentry more accessible to city dwellers by sharing in the love and frustration of living in the city; small spaces, strange pillars in odd places, floors that tilt and walls that aren’t quite flat. The kinds of things that give a place character but can make it hard to furnish.

Back then we had nothing but a small apartment and a Honda Fit. Now, we have a beautiful workshop at Makerspace North, a sexy new van, a team of passionate young people, and customers we consider family.

We continue to put an emphasis on building good relationships not only with our customers but also with our community. We have had the pleasure of turning many local businesses into frequently photographed spots. We’ve seen - with great joy - new couples invest in something custom as they build a future together. And most precious of all, we’ve witnessed families growing and with it their needs for more adaptive and functional spaces.

Thank you to everyone who has helped us get this far. We couldn’t have done it without you. We also encourage you to follow us on social media for daily snippets of the day in the life of the Urban Carpenter.
