The Gravity Bar holds paper goods as long as you like with a simple, scientific, gravity-based mechanism inside. Remember simple machines from Elementary School Science? We built one of them into The Gravity Bar and you're going to love the result.

Uniquely Yours

Custom pieces are designed specifically for a unique set of needs as defined by you, the client. Custom furniture and other fine wares have the potential to positively impact your space, wellbeing and even productivity, all while curbing the appeal of short-term replacement.

Starting Small

Biglow Woodcraft has been on a sporadic trajectory for years, but a more focused approach is being applied to the all new Catalog. Starting with small, wide-appeal products, the Catalog will slowly grow into a large selection of goods and furniture for the conscious home. Take a look at one of our new products now, and support our new focus!

WHAT ARE THING SPOTS?

Custom Design-Build

A custom bench, table, chair, dresser or otherwise can bring a space together and play a supporting role in crafting your ideal at-home lifestyle. Biglow Woodcraft offers a complete design-build suite of services, that can bring any stage of an idea to the finish line. True high quality furniture depends on a considerate approach to the entire process.

    The Food Board is a simple, straightforward entry to the Catalog. A board. For food. Preparing, sharing, gathering around, even photographing; food. It was the second product to join the lineup, our latest focus. The Catalog will continue to leverage our in-house design-build mantra, crafting experimental homewares with fine fit and finish. Head to the Catalog and see how it's going!

  • This custom side table is one of our favourites. It was designed in collaboration with Ivy Row Design. The simplicity of the design keeps the intricacies of the wood grain front and center. Made from locally salvaged White Ash, the turbulent urban growing conditions of a city come through in the wild patterns found in the lumber's grain. It's about more than just "solid wood construction." Take a look at the rest of our portfolio.

  • We made this wine cabinet for a repeat customer, featuring a unique storage solution in the middle for displaying a selection of bottles. The doors have subtle grooves in the top to pull them open, keeping the appearance as refined as possible. Stripping a design down to its essence is the best way to make a piece endure decades of aesthetic preference. Learn more about our philosophies and ambitions.

A River Runs Through It

This tempered glass river table was made for a massive private dining room in Winnipeg and stands out as a one-of-a-kind art piece on which many dinner parties will start. Take a look at the rest of my portfolio here:
