These boys are so good at what they do! They have made my family a beautiful wood bench for our kitchen table, shelves for our sons bedroom and a beautiful walnut coffee table to help raise money for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. We couldn't be happier with everything they have made us and will continue to buy off them in the future. I HIGHLY recommend checking these guys out and giving them a chance because I guarantee you, you won't be disappointed.
We cannot thank Josh and Brain enough for our gorgeous custom twin bookcases. They are the perfect balance of modern and rustic and turned out even more beautiful than we could have imagined! These guys bring your woodworking dreams to reality and are amazing to work with. Highly recommend Pura Vida for your next woodworking project.
We hired Pura Vida to build us a custom vanity. They exceeded our expectation!! It was exactly what I wanted. They installed it for us and everything. Even made sure every final detail was perfect.
When I was indecisive on the colour choice they dropped what they were doing to help me feel at ease. And even brought over tons of different staining samples.
All and all I can't wait to hire them again for my next project.
We recently worked with these amazing guys. They built us a custom coffee table back in the fall. We loved it so much we trusted them to build our family dinning room table, chairs and bench. These were just delivered today, in time for the holidays. They all turned out so beautifully! Amazing quality, sturdy wood furniture and a pleasure to work with. Can’t wait to think up another project!! Great local artisans!!!
We hired Pura Vida to build our custom kitchen table. From past projects, we knew we wanted to go back to them again. From start to finish, they made sure we were involved for the minor details as well as the major details and we are so happy with the quality of work they did. I highly recommend these two to build anything and everything you want because there is nothing they can't do. Love our new table!
Brian and Josh were introduced in the summer of 2013, when Josh met his girlfriends family for the first time.
They hit if off right away while quickly realizing how much they both had in common; including music, movies, life and most importantly wood - making things out of wood.
Throughout the years they dreamed of working together, making furniture out of wood and starting their own business.
In 2017 they decided to test the waters and start by getting together in Josh's basement after work and make tables for fun. Eventually, their friends and family started to support them to the point where they were not able to do this part time anymore and took the plunge by quitting their full time jobs and making their business official in 2018.
They moved out of the basement into a chicken coop at Josh's parents farm in Arkell and outgrew the coop during the pandemic. While most business's were on hold, fortunately Pura Vida Wood Co. remained busy and moved to their current location on York Rd.
