Testimonials

Here is what clients have to say about Thuja Wood Art:

Dear Colin,
Lisa and I want to express our deepest thanks to you for our new handsplit cedars gates. Ever since you showed us photos of your creations in Victoria, we knew we wanted you to unleash your skills at our place.
We sincerely appreciated your neighbourly assistance in the layout and design, and for the creative touches you added at the end. Not only do we have solid, well built wooden gates to help keep the deer out of our garden, but a wonderful unique and aesthetic addition to our yard.

We’ve received many compliments on the gates and hope it will inspire others to call you on your amazing craftsmanship.

All the best,
Don Harrison & Lisa Fleming
Pender Island, BC, Canada

Dear Colin,
Here is the long promised photo of the wonderful bench you made for us, happily nestled into its new home. We especially appreciate the wide arm rests suitable for drink holders and we love the way the bench blends into its environment. The knowledge that it’s made from reclaimed wood is priceless. Keep up the good work.

Dear Colin,

Thank you for creating our beautiful driveway gates. Everyone who passes through them has made comment on the unique gate design and the wonderful use of wood. Your attention to detail and craftsmanship is evident in the finished gates; and we love the marriage of wood and metal to achieve an interesting effect. We appreciate your collaboration with another respected local craftsman, George Hudson of Weldform. The finished result has elements of motion, harmony and unconventionality. Yet the gates feel completely organic and in scale at our driveway’s end here in Port Washington. The photographs speak for themselves.

We also wanted to commend you on the work you did on our patio with the incorporation of the magnificent stone wall. It was a complicated project that involved a high level of design, function and safety features. By using local materials you created a wall that feels like it belongs on the property.

Dear Colin,

Joanne and I are extremely pleased with the garden bench that you have created for us.  The entire process working with you on the creative design and discussion of materials and assembly methods you would use through to completion was effortless and rewarding.  You truly captured and surpassed our expectations in what we envisioned.  Your timing and costing was also handled in a friendly business like manner.

The selection of cedar that you used also makes our bench very unique, original and comfortable.  With its multi-toned wood to the smooth curves it is a pleasure to sit on and appreciate.

We would not hesitate in recommending you to your future customers.  You reflect the true Pender Island spirit in the way you conduct your business.  Keep up the good work.

Thanks again,

Ken and Joanne Schaeffers
