Our Story


This is us! We are the two families behind Wild Wood Goods. Meet Justin & Mike– the men behind the tools– and Leah & Niki, the women behind everything else! 😉

Wild Wood Goods was forged by four friends and our united passion for creativity, community, and woodwork! What originally launched as a fundraising initiative to send Leah to compete amongst the top triathletes in the world at the Ironman 70.3 World Championships soon grew into much more as our community continued to grow.

We strive to tell a story with each authentic, handcrafted piece by sourcing quality materials and unique species of wood. From end grain prep boards, butcher's blocks, and animal inspired charcuterie boards, to resin art pieces and custom furniture orders, we are your friendly neighbourhood team of go-getting woodworkers who bring you the best quality wood goods for your home.

Meet the Team:

 

Justin is an engineer by trade and has loved working with wood ever since moving into our home and having enough space for a workshop! What began as a small hobby to make pieces for our house, as well as gifts for friends and family, soon grew into a big passion. After several years of honing his skills and designs he’s finally decided to take a big leap to share his talent with all of you! He specializes in cutting boards, home furniture, and product design.

Leah is a personal trainer, fitness coach, and a 70.3 distance triathlete with a background in graphic design and marketing. She grew up in Banff, Alberta, and still visits regularly. Her passion for fitness and triathlon, as well as her Rocky Mountain upbringing, influences a lot of the artwork and pieces we create!

  

Mike is a born and raised Calgarian, and an avid fly fisherman with a passion and respect for the outdoors. Woodworking became his  'winter months' hobby for several years, which then turned into a desire to create artisan wood-based home decor and furniture reflecting the wild and his outdoor lifestyle.

 

Niki moved from Ontario to Calgary over 25 years ago and fell in love with the mountains and outdoor life. She's a passionate certified personal fitness trainer with a zest for adventure. She brings an amazing eye for design, colours, and craftsmanship to the Wild Wood Goods team.

"I have nothing but fantastic things to say about Wild Wood Goods! I ordered one of their Brick Boards for myself, and I’m so obsessed/in LOVE with it, I had to order one for my parents and my in-laws for Christmas! These will not be my last orders, that is for sure! The entire team are such hard working, passionate, and creative people! I already have a long wish list for their amazing services, including a gorgeous mountain shelf for a self-gift for my upcoming birthday. SERIOUSLY! You can’t go wrong with these products! The fact that they are all so beautiful plus they offer such specialization per order... YOU CAN’T GO WRONG! This company is incredible!" - Kelsey M.

"I ordered a beautiful charcuterie board from Wild Wood Goods earlier this year and absolutely love it! They were able to ship the board to me in Ontario, and it arrived safe and sound, packaged perfectly to avoid damages in transit. The WWG team also provided care instructions to keep the board looking beautiful, which was very much appreciated! I already have my eyes set on more of their beautiful products for my home." - Lochana P.
