Letter from a traveller: furniture by Vanderhoof craftsman

What a delight to find locally handcrafted furniture by the Vanderhoof Co-op grocery store.

What a delight to find locally handcrafted furniture by the Vanderhoof Co-op grocery store.

These all Canadian repurposed materials are the work of Richie Thomson. He is an artisan and skilled woodworker.

Who would believe you could turn wagon wheels, burls and discarded wood into designer pieces? Richie’s hobby allows him to express his love of his family’s pioneer past and his ability to show the beauty of restored wood. Congratulations, Richie, for bringing us these pure Canadian furniture designs.
