At Black Beards, we make great quality products that are made to last. We reclaim local wood to be used, loved, and displayed throughout your home.
Established in 2020 Black Beards Woodworking was born out of a small garage and has turned into a premier destination for craft woodworking pieces.
Whether you are looking to treat yourself to some new decor, find something practical for your kitchen, or give a heartfelt gift to a friend – we’ve got you covered! Our wood is sourced from Alberta, Canada, and milled and kiln dried locally. so that you know that every piece that is purchased from us saves one more tree from being sent to the wood chipper or landfill.
Blackbeards is a team of Calgarians with a passion for woodworking and nature. In 2020, we decided it was time to turn a hobby into a business, and Black Beards Woodworking was born out of a small garage and shop.
We love our community and getting creative – so if you have something you’d like commissioned, please send us a message!
Say Hello !
Owner & Founder
Duncan started with woodworking as a child in his father’s woodshop and has had a passion for working with wood ever since.
He spent over two decades working in oil and gas before deciding that he needed to be doing carpentry for the rest of his life. And just like that Blackbeard’s Woodworking was born.
Blackbeard’s Woodworking was started in 2020 and has been an active part of the Calgary woodworking scene since. It all started with a small woodshop in the city and has grown into a fully functional urban lumber salvage and milling operation.
I love building spaces: architecture, furniture, all of it, probably more than fashion. The development procedure is more tactile. It's about space and form…
I couldn't live a week without a private library - indeed, I'd part with all my furniture and squat and sleep on the floor before I'd let go of the 1500 or so books I possess.
H. P. Lovecraft
All the choir of heaven and furniture of earth - in a word, all those bodies which compose the frame of the world - have not any subsistence without a mind.
