My name is Carol Bruce Sweeney and I am passionate about creating beautiful live edge wood creations! I believe that the look and feel of natural wood products helps bring us closer to our roots and the natural environment.

I was born in Kingston, Ontario on March 7, 1961. And graduated from LaSalle Secondary High School June 1979. I attended Metzler Business School in Kingston and graduated December 1984. From an early age, I heard from my Dad and Grandpa, if its worth doing its worth doing right, I try to remember that in all areas of my life.

I am a proud mother of one son and two daughters also the very proud Nana of one granddaughter and three grandsons. I feel very blessed to have my family and treasure every minute I spend with them.

I’m an independent woman who is optimistic and gets a lot of joy from the simple things in life. Time with family and friends, being in nature and working.

I began working with wood when my son, who is an Arborist, told me about the wonderful pieces of wood he was producing at his job sites that were being taken to the dump. I find a real joy in turning these rough pieces of wood into beautiful tables and other home décor. I love to watch the grains and colours that naturally live in the wood come to the surface where it can be enjoyed in the home for generations.

I am eager to speak with you about your next live edge wood project!

Let's get in touch!
