I have always been fascinated with the beauty of wood, from the smallest of twigs to the towering forests – and how it can truly be an art in and of itself.  It is for this reason that most of our original works are stained or left with a natural finish – to enhance this inner beauty.  We have finished some items off with coloured dyes, but for the most part we prefer to see the wood’s natural grain.

Since 1985 our shop has been creating works of art in wood – from small tree ornaments and trinkets to quilt racks, from educational games to complex stand-up puzzles.  We have also received requests over the years for custom work, and these projects are considered on an individual basis.

Some things to keep in mind:

  1. All of our products are hand made – no robots or laser cutting.
  2. Our entire process is fashioned around customer satisfaction and exceptional quality.  Nothing is shipped that we would not be willing to purchase ourselves.

The challenge has always been having inventory on-hand – in reality we are usually creating the products to fill specific requests.   So if there is something you are interested in please contact us.

We hope you enjoy your tour through our website, and invite you to come back often as we continue to update it with new offerings.  Should you have any questions or specific requests, you can always reach us at gwa@GuelphWoodArt.ca

If there is a product that you like, but would prefer a larger or smaller version of it, please let us know.
