Welcome to MapleArt Custom Furniture and Fine Woodworking


I am now in retirement mode. After more than 20 years making furniture as a business, and at an age where most people would have retired a long time ago, it is time to focus on other activities. For more detail, please check my April 2023 Newsletter. I may continue to take on the odd challenging commission; you can always ask. I wish to thank all of you for your support and the numerous challenging assignments.

At MapleArt Custom Furniture and fine woodworking, elegance, great joinery, and spectacular woods are integrated in harmonious designs for residential, business and commercial clients in the Vancouver area and throughout the world.

Are you looking for a particular piece of furniture for your home, or for a unique gift for a friend, family or business associate? With many stores selling the same product lines, it can be difficult to find the perfect fit for your space or style. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, my custom furniture and woodworking service offers a solution.

Quality Fine Furniture

I strive to create the highest quality fine furniture – melding superb functionality, art, and beauty for eye and touch – and to deliver pieces that can be cherished for a life time. Your custom furniture will be designed with clean lines which make a strong statement yet convey lightness and beauty inspired by nature: inspiration that can be found walking through a forest or even sitting on a beach shrouded in fog.

Since 2003, I have delivered over 200 different custom designs from my studio in Maple Ridge, just outside Vancouver, British Columbia, to customers in Canada, the USA, Europe and Japan. Nearly half of my business is repeat business and almost 80% is generated through customer recommendations, a great testimony to the quality you will receive with my work.

Whether you want a unique piece of art, or a specific piece of furniture, I take great care to fulfill your requirements. There is little I cannot do with wood and I always enjoy a good challenge! I invite you to call me today at 604-467-2287 to discuss your project.
