About Us

We've been designing and crafting gifts for friends and family for over 30 years. Our sense of old-fashioned craftsmanship and love of new technology has inspired us to find new ways to work with a wide range of materials (wood, metal, glass, stone, ceramics) and create new products for the home and garden.

The name Braecrest Design was adopted in late 2006, as we decided to formally bring our crafts to a wider audience, and we launched this website in July of 2007 to provide an official 'storefront' for our creative expressions. In 2008 we ventured out of the studio and ran a both at our local farmers' market, and in 2009 we added craft shows to our itinerary.

Our sincere desire to satisfy our customers keeps our business goals simple: to offer the finest service and craftsmanship possible in our products.


Everything we sell we make ourselves. We believe the label "Made in Canada" is important and for us it goes beyond patriotism - it also means we're supporting other small businesses.

We recycle used materials when possible, and combine them with Canadian-source natural and man-made materials. Some products are available in many versions to suit the varying tastes of our customers; others come in kit form, allowing the customer to change the product to suit their individual needs.

Since we are often guided by our imagination and customer feedback, our product line is rather diverse. Presently, our website hosts nine product lines: most of which attract birds and/or other life to gardens and yards, and one which serves an all-natural insect control purpose.

Do you have an idea for a "build project", but need to help to make it? Please inquire - we just might be able to help you! Our "custom customers" have been very happy with the stone and wood products we've made for them.


We love feedback - in fact, we thrive on it - so do let us know what you think of our products and/or the website and pass on any comments or suggestions you have about how we can make either more useful to you. If you experience any difficulties here on our website, please feel free to contact us for assistance - either by phone or by e-mailing us directly at braecrest@shaw.ca. We look forward to your comments.

Thanks again for visiting.
