Island Grove Woodwork
Have you recently purchased your dream home? Island Grove Woodwork has what you need to make your new home uniquely yours. You can customize any piece you desire, from clocks, floating shelves, wine racks and candle holders up to large dining room tables, coffee, sofa and end tables, kitchen, vanity and bar counter tops. They commonly use walnut, maple, cherry, ash, oak and some exotic woods as they become available. Each piece is custom made and the slabs are sourced from select Ontario mills, because of the thickness of the wood these pieces can be refinished numerous times and can be passed down from generation to generation.
Island Grove Woodwork’s unique creations are an investment piece for generations to come!
Glass Earth Creations
Suzanne and Brett combine cut and polished stone with fused glass and flame working to create their art. Other pieces include elements from nature and are created in Suzanne’s Sutton studio. Bill has added natural, organic & reclaimed objects such as rocks, glass, black walnuts, feathers, beads and driftwood from Lake Simcoe to create earthy jewellery and wall pendants. Bill does stone cutting and polishing, he also cuts and polishes the stones Suzanne uses in her pieces.
