IT'S AN INVESTMENT

Often paying to have a piece of furniture made, trim installed, or cabinets built, can seem like just another bill to pay. However, what better way to invest into the value of your home. Or to own furniture that will last for generations to come.

LEVI'S ATTIC TOYS

A line of vintage-looking wooden toys will be coming your way soon! Contact below, for more information on this exciting new venture!

ALL ABOUT CUSTOM

"We couldn't find anyone to do this job for us, until we contacted you." Is a phrase I often hear from my clients. Some cabinet makers would call me crazy for taking on some of the jobs I do, yet my clients are always beyond impressed with the final piece.

DESIGN TO REALITY

Clients are always amazed with the accuracy of each one of custom designs to the constructed piece in reality. Something I definitely take pride in.

ALWAYS LEARN

Are you a fellow woodworker? I hope I can offer help and advice, as I keep learning, I'll keep sharing. Always remember, mistakes are only made mistakes if you fail to learn from them.

THERE ARE MANY GUYS OUT THERE WHOSE


NAMES SHOULDN'T BE OUT THERE BUT THAT IS CERTAINLY NOT THE CASE WITH YOU.

Levi Durston I was born and raised in good ol' Saskatchewan, Canada. I quickly grew to have a passion for woodworking ever since my parents finally gave me permission to use the scroll saw. Since that day as a 10 year old boy, I have grown to excel in the craft beyond anyone of my age. Being complimented by woodworkers across North America and the world on the professionalism of my work.

  • MATERIALS

    THEY MATTER

    ~ Every piece I construct, I hand pick the very best materials made available to me.

    ~ I have a love for the art of woodworking and the natural beauty of wood. Therefore; the quality of materials is something I never want to sacrifice in order to save myself a penny or two.

Quality, not Quantity is something I would often hear growing up as a child. Since then, every piece I cut, shape, craft, design, and finish, I work on it with the care and precision as if it were to be in my own home. Woodworking is not just a job, it is a passion. My own standard is often harder to attain then even the client's. I hope you enjoy some of my work shown below and see the detail that goes into each piece.

    I am so pleased to have yet another project under the belt! I questioned myself throughout the building of this unique cabinet… Was I bringing out the worn look I was aiming for? Are the proportions balanced? When you are a perfectionist , and are looking at your own work for over a week, you can really start wondering if the client will be pleased. However, when I finally installed the last of the trim from the puzzle of ┬ávarious cabinet pieces, it exceeded my own expectations as well as the expectations of the client. That’s what I’m after. Bringing smiles to my client’s faces.

    I am pleased to say there is not an ounce of MDF or particle board in this entire piece. All solid oak and premium plywood. Many times I see ways that I could save a penny or two in using more plywood than solid wood. But will never allow myself to compromise the quality of my work for the sake of pocketing more money. My dad always taught me, “Do what you love and money will come. Maybe not at first, but it will.” I am not making as much as maybe I would have hoped. Yet I strive to offer the highest quality work I can, and as my dad says, “The money will come.” In my opinion there are way too many trades guys’ looking to cut corners to save some money. I want to set myself apart from them and never work for the money, but rather for a quality product to bring about a more than pleased client.

    Next in the working, is a fireplace mantle built-in, similar to one I had built a year ago. Very excited to see it come together!

    Until then, thanks for reading and we will see ya next time!

  • LOTS TO COME!

    I guess this marks my first ever blog post! I’m excited for what lies ahead, especially in the fall for my career as a woodworker. It’s been a process getting my name out there, but I have big plans in the fall to finally make my company get on it’s feet. Just in the last two weeks, I’ve bought two Delta planers, a 20″ 7.5 HP, and a 15″ 3 HP. I then bought a Ridgid Table saw which I am very pleased with! In the fall I have plans to kick start with advertising, as I construct a cabinet job that I have booked in for after the summer. Lots to come, and I am so looking forward to what the future of my business holds!

    Until next time,

    Levi
