Turner Entrance Project
1024 768 Thuja Wood Art - Reclaimed Cedar Furniture Wood Art Vancouver Victoria Gulf Islands British Columbia

This winter I was asked to do an entrance gate and fencing project on Salt Spring Island at the same residence where I have built a bench, and dining table with chairs in the past.   The property is lovely and on the water. To enclose the inner yard the clients wanted a section of artistic fencing going between the main house and the studio/garage.  There was already a covered roof over a walk way between…

Handsplit cedar fence extension
1024 768 Thuja Wood Art - Reclaimed Cedar Furniture Wood Art Vancouver Victoria Gulf Islands British Columbia

This little fence extension is part of a much larger fencing project I did a couple of years ago.  The owner decided to add 3 more sections to follow the property line to the neighbours driveway and define a patch of forest in the corner of his property.  The fence is built to match the original fencing, all handsplit red cedar from salvaged driftwood.  The extension steps down and back up again into the corner…

This cedar fence is made with salvaged hand split red cedar.  Thick and thin fence boards make for a solid design intended for privacy, and the curved pickets at the top with matching curved detail along the fence add an artistic element.  The posts are mounted on saddles embedded in concrete, keeping the posts off the ground.

Kierans Fence Project

This is a great fencing project on Pender Island.  156′ long, it follows the driveway from near the road down into the yard and along the side of the orchard.  We started by working with the client to come up with something they really liked to meet their needs of privacy, function and art.  Then we dug holes for the posts, filled them with concrete and metal post saddles to keep the wood up off the ground…

Herb Garden Fence
640 480 Thuja Wood Art - Reclaimed Cedar Furniture Wood Art Vancouver Victoria Gulf Islands British Columbia

This little fencing project was designed to create a usable space where it did not exist before on a steep rocky slope.  The client wanted to have a herb garden just off their deck, but with the prolific deer on this island you have to fence everything.  They decided to do some simple stone terracing themselves to create little beds in the hillside to grow herbs.  The fence creates a little enclosure where they can…

Stranan Hand Split Cedar Fence Project
150 150 Thuja Wood Art - Reclaimed Cedar Furniture Wood Art Vancouver Victoria Gulf Islands British Columbia

Another great local hand split cedar fencing project came my way this year.   This fence is made entirely from reclaimed and salvaged old growth red cedar.  I started by putting in the post saddles.  For the first time ever I had the help of post hole digger on a bobcat, which I must say really speeds things up, and makes a nice neat round hole for the most part.  The holes are 2′ deep here…
