Discover Kate Duncan Designs THIS WEEKEND at Got Craft? - Templeton Secondary School - 727 Templeton Drive, Vancouver.
What do you make/sell/service do you provide? I make high quality housewares and furniture using high quality hardwoods. I am also available for design and construction of custom made furniture. I launched a line of cutting boards and serving trays in February 2013 and a bathroom collection including a vanity, mirror and series of towel bards is set to launch June 2013. And that's not all; 5 pieces set of furniture including a bed, night stand, dining table, credenza and bench are set to launch in September 2013.
What inspires you? I draw inspiration from clean lines and traditional joinery. I begin each and every piece with the intention to make it last more than a lifetime, not only in construction, but also design. By keeping lines clean and design free from clutter my pieces will outlast fads and furniture trends for decades. Utilizing solid traditional joinery including dovetails and mortis / tenon joints my pieces will withstand years of wear and tear. When and why did you start Kate Duncan Designs? I started my company back in 2010. I felt that I had outgrown woodworking as a hobby and was moving towards having a stronger expertise in the trade. I needed clients to keep me motivated and keep me on my woodworking toes. Having clients continue to push the limits of my experience is what motivates me to continue learning new skills and techniques.Any words of wisdom to share? Measure twice, cut once. Seriously.
