Doug Symes, a self taught woodworker is inspired by the natural beauty of wood. Using mainly local, kiln dried wood and fallen tree limbs, Doug creates uniquely carved, wood keepsake boxes, pet urns, jewelry and jewelry boxes. Larger projects include occasional tables, wall shelves, coat racks furniture restoration and refinishing, as well as custom woodworking. Often,  Doug’s original design and expressive style combines colour and hand painting, using water based wood stain, which he incorporates into the design, working with the wood for the overall finished piece.
