ABOUT WESTERN PRIDE WOODWORKS
Western Pride Woodworks is a small local live edge and custom woodworking shop located in Innisfil, ON.
The company name, Western Pride Woodworks, is derived from my family’s proud prairie roots in Saskatchewan.
My Name is Derek N Lunau, a formally-trained artisan carpenter. I have been perfecting my craft for over 25 years. My work can be seen in various residences throughout some of the most prestigious areas of Toronto, The GTA and Simcoe County.
Brought up from childhood in the world of General Contracting. then owning my own company Western Pride Home Services, I return back full time to my love of working with all things wood, where I can express my true creative talents each and every day.
Western Pride Woodworks is a small shop where your satisfaction and enjoyment of your custom piece of furniture is held in the highest regard. I strive to make you feel included in the process, respected and treated equally regardless of who you are. ALL ARE WELCOME TO CONNECT
Your purchase also helps me help with the effects of the terrible war on Ukraine and the effects of the covid 19 pandemic. 5% of all profits are donated to the local Innisfil food bank and Mental Health in Simcoe County.

MY PROFESSIONAL OPINION ON JOINTS IN LIVE EDGE TABLE TOPS
Being a trained carpenter one of the most important things you are taught is NEVER PUT JOINTS IN YOUR WORK IF THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE! Sometimes joints are unacceptable from both the aesthetic side and more important the structural side of building. Live edge slab tables look absolutely stunning when they are produced from a single seamless slab. As far as I am concerned this is an example of achieving the highest standard in the look of your table. If you purchase a joined live edge table top it is not that you are buying something that is not structurally sound if made correctly by a trained artisan, but you are purchasing a live edge table with a joint that you can see when there is an option to purchase one without!
Single slabs are harder to find, harder to work with because of size , but offer a premium finished seamless product. A single slab live edge table is our recommended choice to achieve the highest level of design.
We think it is better to be seeking the wood of the large trees that are approaching the end of the life-cycle, have completed it or have outgrown there surroundings and need to be felled for safety reasons. Lets leave the smaller trees to keep growing and benefit all that depends on them. For some interesting information on the highly coveted Black Walnut Tree and how important it is in our ecosystem have a look at this link ” BLACK WALNUT A VERY SPECIAL TREE “
We found this information so interesting that we are committing to plant one black walnut sapling for every single slab table we create helping to preserve this precious resource for generations to come.
I do offer superb joinery services as well for all other table and custom furniture designs, if you dont see it listed , I can probably craft it so please ask !
we are huge on providing old world craftsmanship and good old customer service. crafting you furniture that will be passed on from generation to generation benefiting you and the environment is our modus operandi. we offer our services to you at fair and honest price points
I hold the utmost respect for the beautiful trees that inhabit our earth. They are just as alive as we. Unfortunately, trees do not stand forever.
There are many reasons why they have been removed or have fallen, including safety reasons and damage. This is where live edge and solid wood furniture become interesting.
We bring forth the inner beauty of these trees and give new life in the form of furniture that will be passed on from generation to generation.
