Yew WoodShop

Custom woodworking studio

Our studio is shared by small businesses who focus on wood design and production, as well as supply of BC wood products. Find out more about each business. 



The Yew WoodShop is a shared woodworking studio run by its members, many of whom met in university at Emily Carr in the Industrial Design program. Within the space, separate businesses work alongside one another in order to share ideas, experience and the shop facilities. Specializing in using reclaimed and predominantly local materials, the Yew WoodShop takes on a diverse range of projects that include (but are not limited to) wood product development, furniture production, art and sculpture, retail displays/signage and other custom solid wood products for the built environment.
