The name says it all: Almost Anything Wood is the place to go if you’re looking for custom-built kitchen cabinetry, vanities, wall units, shelving, or unique live edge wood furniture and accents for home or work. From the design and build stage through to installation and finish, they do it all.
Their reputation is synonymous with detailed craftsmanship, quality products and exceptional service. When you are building a business in the community you call home, your integrity is on the line in every project you do, because your customers aren’t just people – they are your neighbours. Dave and Deb Veldhuizen knew that when they started Almost Anything Wood 30 years ago. Their son Nick was raised in the family business, learning the art of craftsmanship while understanding the importance of customer service. The tradition continues.
Almost Anything Wood can do absolutely everything with wood that you need. Their custom cabinetry expertise makes kitchen renovations the talk of the town, for good reason. And while it remains their most popular customer request, their success with repeat business has customers (and the children of former customers) welcoming them back to complete other projects in and around homes and businesses too. Whether your project is a complete kitchen renovation, a bathroom redesign or customized wall unit, shelving or customized storage for the entranceway to your home, Almost Anything Wood will make your dream a reality.
It all begins with a vision and a simple conversation. Dave and Nick will come to you to get a sense of your space, determine your needs and suggest the best way to make use of your living space. Measurements in hand, they’ll head to the drawing board, a virtual computerized system that will allow them to produce a virtual three-dimensional design of your room or project. With your vision a virtual reality, there is time to make changes, select wood finishes, colours, whatever you like.
Find your inspiration in the Almost Anything Wood showroom, complete with two model kitchens and a full selection of cabinet styles, finishes, doors, handles and other accents. With trusted suppliers and three decades of expertise, you can be sure the product quality of every material here meets Dave’s high standards. Fully customizable, your designs will function to your specifications, from soft close track fixtures and hinges to dovetailed drawers and stylish décor features.
From the current trends of wood islands, with seamless design, to modern flat panel cupboards for a sleek finish, to the popularity of painted white cabinets, blending an old look with a new style, Almost Anything Wood has the skill and craftsmanship to build it right. Perhaps you’d prefer the traditional look of walnut cabinets, the honey warmth of maple or the elegance of cherry, or even a more exotic appeal of woods such as teak. The choice is yours and there are so many options. Whatever you decide, Dave and Nick will be sure your space reflects your lifestyle as you see fit.
When they say “customized,” the team at Almost Anything Wood mean it. Every cabinet, vanity, or unit is cut and finished to meet your unique design specifications, whatever they may be. There are no pre-fab pieces or particle board materials. Cabinets are built from environmentally-friendly maple plywood with a clear finish. Everything is made-to-order and hand-finished at their Fergus shop. Attention to detail is a matter of pride here.
But as proud members of the Centre Wellington Contractors Association, Almost Anything Wood is affiliated with the top contractors in the community, and thus, held to a high standard of credibility. It also provides a reliable network of qualified trades contacts for their customers. Being able to recommend trusted local trades is important to Almost Anything Wood, and it’s that experience and knowledge that their customers rely on.
While custom-cabinetry and kitchens are the mainstay of their business, Nick has introduced the inspired wood-working trend of live edge furniture and décor to the Almost Anything Wood showroom, and it has been a great success.
So, what is ‘Live Edge’? Well, basically, it is taking a vertical slice from the trunk of a tree, and turning it into something both useful and spectacularly unique. The bark can be left on the edge of the wood, giving each piece a raw, weathered feel. Being a vertical slice of wood, the pattern of grain is complete. Natural flaws and inconsistencies are left, and even enhanced, to become part of the overall finish. It’s artful, appealing, and functional. No two pieces are alike.
The character of these live edge pieces is not only in the grain of the wood, but in the story behind them. Cut from local trees, downed by storms or by nature of their age, Nick knows the history of the trees that then inspire his creative recycling ideas. Sometimes an old tree is turned into a sentimental keepsake piece, like a beautiful dining table for the family. Live edge wood serves many purposes from furniture to smaller items, such as serving platters, Charcuterie boards and more.
Almost Anything Wood is now a certified dealer of Ecopoxy, a colourful way to embellish live edge pieces with flair. Add resin colours to fill in the natural voids and grooves of the wood and transform them to create something spectacular. With coloured kits, anyone can embellish their live edge pieces with ease. But of course, customized pieces are available too. See it for yourself at the Almost Anything Wood showroom.
Maybe you’re looking for your own live edge pieces. Almost Anything Wood has lumber in stock. It’s worth the drive to check out the ever changing selection of natural wood for your own live edge projects.
Bring your vision to the team at Almost Anything Wood and allow them to impress you with the skill and knowledge to transform your space and make your vision a reality.
