Work by Richard Grenier Published in Ottawa Life Magazine

The Door was commissioned by the City of Ottawa

The challenge was replicating the woodworking standards of the 1870's

Made entirely of mortise and tenon, and hard wood wedges, to comply with

The Heritage Committee standards of Ottawa

No glue, screws or nails were used in this door

The platform bed was commissioned by a client in Ottawa

Made entirely of red oak, including the 110 year old slab headboard

I carefully hand picked the slab and epoxied with an eco epoxy made in

Canada. The 4 drawers , 2 on each side, under the bed, make use of valuable storage space are made of western red cedar, giving an aromatic sent to linen and clothes.

The U shaped night stands allow the bottom drawers to open seamlessly

The Custom western red cedar deck and sheds were also commissioned by a client to revamp a worn out porch. The 2 storey brick duplex was built in the 1960's.

Designing a modern style of timber frame look as well as the custom sheds were a pleasure . Adding the horizontal louvers to the bottom side wall brought

some relief from direct sunlight, but allowed for light to come in
