Your Urban Carpenter


Carpentry & Creativity

Wood is one of humankind's oldest building materials. It links us simultaneously to the natural and the imaginative, the transformational and the functional. Our love for carpentry is as much about the origin of the material as it is about the possibility of what it can do.

The best projects allow a marriage of creativity and logic in both the design and use of the structure. We have had the pleasure of working with exceptional businesses and households on a variety of custom projects. Aaron is experienced in building both indoor and outdoor structures with a distinct earthy yet urban style made for city dwellers.

Kind Words From Clients

Above all else, we continue to be amazed at how easy it is to work with Aaron. He was very quick to understand the brand and “vibe” of our business, and has helped to develop countless solutions for us. Black Squirrel would not be the unique and oft photographed venue that it is without Aaron’s help
— Gary Franks, Black Squirrel Books
Working with Aaron was awesome. We came to him with just an idea and some photos for inspiration. Aaron was able to bring it to life, designing and building custom pieces that took our inspiration to the next level. The pieces he made for us have now become focal points of our space where people come together, gather and connect. They’re beautiful, thoughtfully designed, functional, flexible, and made with an attention to detail that can only come from Aaron’s handmade touch and love.
— Katie Miller, Impact Hub Ottawa
