Bram D’Hoest, Woodworker
Artist’s Statement – Biography
I’m a programmer turned furniture maker, wood turner and CNC guy. Born and raised in Bruges – Belgium, I moved to Ottawa – Canada in 2009 where I worked as a software architect until 2015, when we moved to Smiths Falls. In 2015, I started my business to offer my clients an alternative to today’s mass produced, poorly made furniture and home decor accents. I offer my clients a selection of Canadian made solid wood quality made furniture, home decor accents, kitchen utensils and wooden toys.
When you buy a piece from me you know you are:
- Buying a piece that was created with sustainably harvested Ontario lumber
- Buying a piece made to the highest standards
- Supporting a Canadian Made product
In today’s world of mass production, Canadian made solid wood furniture and home decor accents are getting hard to find. My mission is to offer my clients with a selection of Canadian made solid wood quality furniture, home decor accents, kitchen utensils and wooden toys. I am passionate about sustainability and make every attempt to use local wood whenever possible which is why I am a proud member of Ontario Wood.
