Some kind comments from happy patrons ...

Two years ago, after much research as to what was available, we were lucky enough to discover Paul Allen and his talent for building rustic furniture that is beautiful, sturdy and well crafted.

His first project for us was a simple, yet striking, end table. We were so happy with it and enjoyed working with Paul so much that we then commissioned him to build two bathroom cabinets, a hall bench and a mantelpiece adorned with twig, birch and antlers - the focal point of our cottage. It's simply magnificent and never fails to delight!

Paul is an artist of the first-order and a skilled craftsman above all. He fashions wonderful, reasonably priced, one-of-a-kind rustic pieces in his own right, yet also has the flexibility (and good humour) to incorporate the ideas and specifications of clients on custom orders. He has a keen sense of proportion and design, and knows how to combine the subtle colours, and textures of rustic building materials in ways that are truly remarkable.

I have worked with Paul on a number of successful design and building projects.  He has been a pleasure to work with.

Paul has built great pieces of furniture for me that have pleased my clients and enhanced the special spaces they were designed for.

As an interior designer, I have always been very happy with the quality of Paul's workmanship and the ease with which we can work together.

John and I just wanted to let you know how pleased we are of all the work you have done for us to make our cottage look so nice. It is hard to believe that it all started with a mirror for the bunkie. We always get compliments for the cupboards in the kitchen, everyone wants to know who did it and how it was done. The dressers in the bedrooms are great and the bathroom vanity is fantastic as well.

We love your work. Our next vision for the cottage is a new dining room, once we figure out how we will do this we will be calling. take care and we look forward to seeing you soon.

John and Fran Brunton


We just want to thank you again for the beautiful rustic bedroom suite you created for us, it surpasses all of our expectations. Now our bedroom really completes our cottage, and everyone who sees it want to know who made it for us so we may be sending a bit of work your way. Your work is rustic artistry at its finest, and you have been a pleasure to do business with!! 

Best regards,

As an interior decorator I've used Paul's services many times over the last ten years. He has built wonderful pieces for many of my clients as well as my personal home. He has always come through with beautiful work and innovative designs. His personal touch has always been a hit with my clients. I would highly recommend his work for anyone who wants something artistic, well built and beautiful.
