 "Bill always finds exactly what I ask for regarding size and colour/wood type and has it shipped to me quickly and very thoughtfully and safely.  You can tell he cares a lot about what he's doing, it really reflects in his amazing craftmanship and attention to detail.  Bill's boards are beautiful and his finishes are natural and food safe.   The wax oil blend he provides works so well and my boards have looked fabulous for years, with lots of regular use"

Katie Eyre, Founder and Creative Lead, Brie and Banquet Wild Catering Co. Calgary, Alberta, Canada

"I recently ordered several of the walnut charcuterie boards form Live Edged Woodcraft for myself and a couple of friends.  Bill was extremely helpful in helping us get exactly what we wanted.  The boards arrived very quickly and are absolutely gorgeous.  I am so impressed with the craftmanship and customer service from Live Edged Woodcraft. I  will be ordering cheese boards for gifts!"

Susan Rea, Professional Interior Designer, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada

''I had the pleasure of gifting one of Bill's boards to my partner, who was beyond excited to receive such an exquisite board. It was even more detailed and visually stunning in person. As someone who has worked with many artisans and woodworkers over the years. I was beyond impressed by not only the quality of the board but also the value and level of service from Bill at Live Edge Woodcraft. This brand you will find offers stylish and rustic handmade products that are sure to exceed your every expectation.''
