We’ve been quite busy over the last few months, and we’re excited to share some new changes with you! As you know, Son of a Woodcutter was born in the heart of Toronto back in 2013. Our company was started with the goal of creating sustainable, well made furniture that was as long lasting as it was beautiful.
Since then, we’ve spent the better part of a decade servicing Toronto, the GTA and beyond, designing and building custom wood furniture made with attention to detail and a commitment to craftsmanship.
We continue to do that today, but from a new location!
We’ve moved our shop to near St. Mary’s, Ontario, where we recently purchased a small farm with a house and newly built 10,000 sq ft shop. This gives us endless possibilities that just would not be possible with Toronto real estate, allowing us to serve you better and more efficiently.

What does this move mean for you?
We continue to serve Toronto and the GTA (and beyond!) just from a different shop location. But don’t worry, this won’t impact your service – if anything, it will dramatically improve the way we do business!
Having this new shop means not only will we have more space and more efficient processes, but it will also enable us to carry out more complex custom furniture design projects.
We are still a Toronto business at heart, and are so committed to bringing beauty to your homes and partnering with Toronto interior designers to elevate design projects.
To make things easier with the new location, we’re now offering both virtual and in-home consultations for custom projects. You can book one for yourself here. The in-home consultations are available in Toronto and the GTA. If you are outside the GTA, please reach out to see if we can accommodate you for an in-person consultation!
We’ve always been committed to sustainability in all that we do, and we’re excited that this move will only further support that. Our new location enables us to carry on our work in a more sustainable way, and with a better quality of life. The new location is built for sustainable living! We’re loving growing our own vegetables and reducing waste.
One of the biggest hurdles so far has been that this was previously an amish-owned property, which means there was no electricity. We’ve had to add electricity to the shop and the house. The only source of heat was a wood stove. Even the water heater was wood fired!
We’re grateful to have been extremely well welcomed to this predominantly Amish community!
We can’t wait to see what’s next.
The last year has been one that came with a lot of change, some struggles, and some blessings. We are so excited for this new change, and to be able to serve you better, building the highest quality of furniture. Son of a Woodcutter was born out of the values of tradition, craftsmanship and integrity, and we can’t think of a better place to live out those values than our new home on acres of sustainable land in this beautiful little town.
