My name is Mike Frencel and I am the owner, sawyer, designer and craftsman here at the Old Schoolhouse Mill (woodslabs.ca). I have been sawing, drying and crafting unique live edge furniture for over 12 years. My love for live edge slabs has always stemmed from the unique characteristics of the lumber; the shape, knots, cracks and voids always result in a unique experience in the crafting process.
My goal at the Old Schoolhouse mill is to create unique, one-of-a-kind pieces. This is contrary to today’s furniture market which is flooded by factory built, mass-produced, low-quality products. If you’re interested in a furniture commission or want to purchase some high-quality live edge lumber for your own project, contact me today!
