There is a new business in the Comox Valley — Artisan Wood To Works.
It’s a niche woodcraft business catering to people who love to work with wood.
Wood To Works can supply all your needs in domestic and exotic wood, accessories, and tools for carving, woodturning, to lutherie (making of stringed instruments). There are also classes available for all woodworkers, beginners to advanced.
Artisan Dale Rouleau is the heart and soul of the business.
Dale has been creating his works of art for over 26 years. You can see his award-winning work at many galleries in B.C. and abroad.
Having briefly worked in retail, teaching and selling tools and machinery, Dale realized that there existed a need to also supply the different woods of the world to these craftsmen who had the tools but not the raw product.
Wood To Works has a broad array of eco-friendly harvested woods, and a line of tools, lathes, bandsaws, etc. that will not disappoint.
Dale has worked tirelessly to create a unique store that marries the supply of raw material, tools, and instruction.
Wood to Works grand opening will happen Dec. 3 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 2267 Cousins Rd. in Courtenay. For more details, phone 250-331-9392.
