Gunn Woodworks seeks to showcase the natural beauty of wood while providing functional, heirloom quality furniture. Whenever possible we use reclaimed, re-purposed or local sourced and sustainably harvested lumber. We use only natural oil, or water based and shellac finishes on our pieces to highlight the inherent elegance of the wood grain.
Founded in Toronto in 2012 by Cameron Gunn, the workshop is now located in Kingston, Ontario. After 8 years teaching Social Sciences to high school students, Cameron decided to really put his Philosophy degree to work, and Gunn Woodworks was born. The kidding aside, Cameron came to the realization that his real love was working with his hands, using the natural materials that surrounded him while canoeing in northern Ontario to create functional yet beautiful pieces of hierloom furniture.
