What our customers have to say

Working with their team was seamless from drawings to install

Fernie Woodcrafters completed a custom hand railing project for us. Made from knotty Alder, with a custom stain match, as well as a fireplace mantle. Working with their team was seamless from drawings to install, and the quality of work is excellent. S2 builders would not hesitate to use Fernie Woodcrafters again in the future.

The quality of their work is beautiful

I had the pleasure of partnering with Canmore Woodcrafters for a very large high end project in Fernie that encompassed a lot of custom work over many years. Brian was so amazing to work with because he is professional, detailed, timely, design savvy and enthusiastic. Working with him was seamless and the craftsmanship of the products were precise. From drawings to installation, it could not have gone any smoother every time! The quality of their work is beautiful and their ability to deliver on custom details is incredible. It is exciting to see Brian bringing this quality woodwork option to the Elk Valley through Fernie Woodcrafters. I highly recommend Brian and Fernie Woodcrafters to anyone.

Workmanship was top quality

I worked with “Canmore Woodcrafters” on a large project both as the designer and an installer. I found the shop very professional, with great communication through the entire process of shop drawings, problem solving, and construction. Their work came to site exactly when we wanted it, so it did not delay the site schedule, the workmanship was top quality and well thought out for easy site installation. I also noted a great quality finish on the cabinets which were both colored lacquer, and custom stain on solid wood. Overall I would highly recommend Fernie Woodcrafters for any custom millwork project, you wont be disappointed!

THE QUALITY IS ASTONISHING

The Municipal District of Bighorn recently engaged Canmore Woodcrafters to provide extensions/ adjustments to our Council Chambers' tables. The project required matching newly constructed tables to our already-constructed (by another company) 3 yr. old tables, and "renewing" those same already-constructed tables. The quality of the completed and renewed products is astonishing: Canmore Woodcrafters' ability to blend the new extensions into the existing tables is unbelievable, as one cannot tell which were the old tables and which are the new ones. The work was completed with a minimum of fuss and interruption, on time and on budget. There would be no hesitation in re-engaging Canmore Woodcrafters for any similar work that our organization might have.

I WOULDN'T HESITATE TO HIRE THEM FOR ANY JOB IN THE FUTURE.

I've used Woodcrafters a number of times throughout the years for retail projects, and for our new office space. Their Swiss heritage can be seen in the perfection with which they do their jobs. They also stand behind everything they do. I wouldn't hesitate to hire them for any job in the future. They aren't the cheapest, but they are the best!

HIGH-QUALITY STANDARDS AND GREAT CRAFTSMANSHIP

We had the opportunity to work with Canmore Woodcrafters on the Whitebark Café in Banff, Alberta. Due to  square foot limitations, the millwork was an important part of the design and function of the space. Not only was their product of high-quality standards and great craftsmanship, they were able to turn onsite issues that may occur in any renovation or new build, into a practical, professional result. Canmore Woodcrafters did exceptional work, we look forward to an ongoing relationship with them.

APPRECIATE THE LEVEL OF CARE AND PERSONAL ATTENTION YOU SHOWED ME

Thanks Canmore Woodcrafters, for helping me with a new vanity for our home bathroom renovation. I really appreciated the level of care and personal attention you showed me. Even with my tight timeline, I knew I could count on you for excellent workmanship and sound advice. Throughout the process I was confident in you to have my vanity well built, delivered on time, and installed professionally. Even your post-installation follow-up was impressive.

EXTREMELY PLEASED

Looking forward to our next project!

THE TEAM TAKES GREAT PRIDE IN THEIR WORK, AND IT SHOWS

Ernst & Brian Salzgeber’s team take great pride in their work, and it shows. They actually get excited about WOOD! I have had several pieces of custom furniture built out of exotic materials, and they turned out amazing! Canmore Woodcrafters creativity and attention to detail played a major part in creating what I would consider furniture for a lifetime. A pleasure to work with, and a wonderful family.

CREATING WORKS OF FINE WOOD ART

My wife and I built a very special home in Canmore with 12 different types of woods, ranging from burled redwood to bubinga. The home exemplifies the highest standards of craftsmanship that one can imagine. There were many great craftsmen who worked on the house, but one that stands out were the “artists”, and I do not use that term loosely, from Canmore Woodcrafters. Perhaps the easiest way to explain this is there was a workman from another company who was in our house and commented that he had been in a number of homes in Canmore, but had never witnessed a kitchen (that was manufactured and installed by Canmore Woodcrafters) with the quality of our kitchen. Of course, throughout the home there are other amazing details that Canmore Woodcrafters created, but the word from another craftsman certainly speaks volumes about their ability to create works of fine wood art. Finally, my wife and I, as well as our numerous guests, are always amazed at the quality of the work performed by Canmore Woodcrafters.

GOES THE EXTRA MILE TO ENSURE HAPPINESS

Canmore Woodcrafters went the extra mile to ensure that my client was completely happy. We had a unique request which required Brian Salzgeber to personally travel and hand pick the perfect reclaimed beam from an area in Southern Alberta. The Woodcrafters team worked together to take the clients vision and create the perfect fireplace mantel for a 13th century style mountain home. Friendly service, professional product and overall enjoyable experience.

WE WERE THRILLED WITH THE RESULTS!

Although we had only just recently completed a renovation of our Banff home, there was some remedial work and a few outstanding cabinetry issues left to deal with. Ernst enthusiastically met with us and his team stepped in immediately to address our concerns. Needless to say, we were thrilled with the results! Their knowledge and expertise (they created some new cabinetry and made some repairs to the existing pieces, and matched the color and finish perfectly!), along with their overall attention to detail, was second to none.

We would highly recommend Canmore Woodcrafters Ltd. to anyone looking for high quality craftsmanship, and outstanding service.

MILLWORK IS SECOND TO NONE IN OUR INDUSTRY

We have completed numerous projects together in Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper over the past 17 years.

From start to finish, your attention to detail, quality manufacturing and first-class installation of all architectural millwork is second to none in our industry. We face many challenges working in the hospitality industry, but you have always made it easy because of your professionalism.

Canmore Woodcrafters Ltd. has been our first choice for all our millwork requirements and will remain in the future.

DON’T LOOK FURTHER FOR WOOD WORKING NEEDS

We started to use CWC in 1992 and never had to look any further for our woodwork needs. few times we had to place orders months ahead due to their success. Ernst Salzgeber and his team have always been and are of great help each time we are in a tight spot due to a short schedule. With Brian taking over you can be sure that their highly trained team will provide the utmost in service and quality.

You saved me a lot of time, trouble and money

Thank you so much for the tip on removing the white marks on my dining room table and wooden bar top.

While I considered using an iron, thinking about it a little more brought me to the conclusion that a heat gun at a relatively low setting might work…. it worked perfectly with no damage to the finish.  I just used it carefully and not too close to the surface.

All gone now so will just put on a coat of wash and it should be good.  You saved me a lot of time, trouble and money - Greatly Appreciated!

- Richard
