Bram D'Hoest

Hi, I'm Bram D'Hoest!


I was born and raised in Bruges, Belgium. In 2008, I moved to Canada and in 2013, my wife and I settled down on a homestead in beautiful Montague, Ontario, where we have chickens, bees and a big organic garden.


I have been working with wood for as long as I can remember. I come from a family of carpenters, cobblers and craftspeople. A few years ago I built a small workshop which has since evolved into a small business and I feel fortunate to now dedicate myself to my woodworking full time.


I am passionate about sustainability and make every attempt to use only local wood, most of which I harvest myself within my community. I focus on only felling trees which need to come down, either due to disease or damage. This allows me to lessen the footprint of my business, help out neighbors and feel good that I literally have a hand in all stages of production.
