About na coille studio
NA COILLE STUDIO IS DEDICATED TO CREATING WELL CRAFTED LIVE EDGE AND RECLAIMED WOOD FURNITURE, INCLUDING DINING TABLES, COUNTERTOPS, COFFEE TABLES, BENCHES, CHAIRS AND HARVEST TABLES, MADE WITH WOOD SOURCED RIGHT HERE IN OTTAWA. MOST OF THE WOOD WE USE IS URBAN WOOD, SOURCED NO FURTHER THAN 40 MINUTES AWAY FROM OUR SHOP. OUR FURNITURE IS BUILT USING SOLID LOCALLY SALVAGED WOOD, TRADITIONALLY JOINED, HEIRLOOM QUALITY AND FINISHED TO PERFECTION. OUR PASSION LIES WITH USING OLD GROWTH RECLAIMED AND SALVAGED WOOD FROM THE OTTAWA VALLEY, NOT JUST FOR ITS SUSTAINABILITY, BUT FOR THE TIGHT DEEP COLOURED GRAIN AND RICH PATINA. EACH PIECE OF WOOD HAS A RICH HISTORY THAT’S SO IMPORTANT TO US.
We’re a small team of dedicated craftspeople, constantly looking to push the boundaries and try new things. We use a mix of materials including wood, steel and resin. We’re extremely passionate about our impact on the environment and do our best to pursue eco-friendly options with each build. We do our best to source only locally salvaged wood, and tend to mill the lumber we use, ourselves.
LOCALLY SALVAGED AND RECLAIMED MATERIAL
WE TAKE THE TIME TO SELECT THE BEST RECLAIMED & SALVAGED WOOD, WHETHER IT’S LIVE EDGE SLABS, OR DIMENSIONAL LUMBER FROM THE OTTAWA AREA. WE WORK WITH DOMESTIC, LOCALLY-GROWN HARD AND SOFT WOODS. EACH SPECIES HAS ITS OWN QUALITIES AND CHARACTERISTICS TO MAKE IT GREAT FOR FINE FURNITURE MAKING, INCLUDING BLACK WALNUT, BLACK CHERRY, MAPLE, HEMLOCK, PINE, OAK, AND AMERICAN OR RED ELM.
200 years ago, the Ottawa Valley was known around the world for its large tracts of land, covered with pristine White and Red Pine, Eastern Hemlock, White and Red Oak, Sugar Maple and White Cedar. We’re very lucky to have access to some of this old growth lumber, as well as newer growth material that has been sustainably sourced, through our connections with local arborists.
LIVE EDGE SLABS
Looking for something specific? Choose your own live edge slab from the stock we have available. We’ve got a great selection of local Ottawa wood from Hard Maple, Black Cherry, Black Walnut, Red or White Oak, Butternut and both American and Red Elm, all sourced from local arborists from the Ottawa area. These are all one of a kind live edge slabs, cut from locally salvaged logs and often milled onsite. All of our wood is locally salvaged or reclaimed, never do we purchase or mill logs that were not in need of felling. All of our live edge slabs are all available for projects. If there’s something you see and think it would make for a killer piece of furniture, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. To view our Catalogue, please click here.
From time to time, we hear from people who’ve had trees removed, that are too big for the local sawyers, with our Alaskan Sawmill, there’s not much we can’t cut. We’re now setup to custom mill anything up to 60″ wide. We’ll mill onsite, or you can have us pick up your logs and we’ll mill them back at our wood lot. Lots of big old local trees end up at the landfill, or even worse, burned, we’re now able to mill those logs and give them the chance to be made into heirloom furniture. If you’d like us to mill some logs for you, please contact us at email@example.com
