Detlef Grundmann Pebble Woodworks Victoria, B.C.
I have been a woodworker for over 12 years. Five years ago, I escaped the corporate world, and came to Metchosin, a rural community just west of Victoria, to concentrate on my woodworking. Surrounded by trees and nature, I am inspired to create a range of woodworking, from small functional items, such as cutting boards and rolling pins, to unique boxes, to one-of-a-kind furniture pieces.
I believe in the natural beauty of wood, and produce primarily works made from solid wood. Many of my pieces are made of locally sourced woods, such as western maple and garry oak. I focus on both the technical with solid construction techniques, as well as the aesthetic, with designs that complement the wood (and vice versa). Incorporating curves and natural shapes are a signature of my style. I produce spec pieces, as well as accept commissions.
I am a member of the Vancouver Island Woodworkers Guild and the Furniture Society.
