hat lengths would you go to acquire a one of a kind table? Black Forest Wood Company in Calgary, Alberta produces some of the most beautiful wooden masterpieces in the world. Black Forest’s river table design has been copied over and over, but the craftsmanship in their pieces remains unparalleled.

Humble Beginnings

Since the company’s origin in 1993, the owner, Brad Thomas, has found ways to create one of a kind household items made of the finest woods. From woodworking in his house to upgrading into a large warehouse and storefront, Brad has seen the fruits of his labor finally paying off.

Originally, Black Forest had prided themselves in somewhat traditional tables, doors, and other fine furniture. During November of 2017, they attempted their first resin pour accompanied by a slab of walnut in a ‘river’ table. Just a month later, their Instagram post of the table went viral and their clientele base grew exponentially.

Celebrity Clientele

From clients such as The Nelk Boys, J.B. Smoove, and Zedd, the people of Black Forest have created quite a name for themselves amongst the famous. They now mix pigmented resin into many of their projects including wall art, tables, countertops, and benches. Pieces range from $1,000 to tens of thousands depending on the size and species of wood the client chooses. If you can dream it, they can make it and deliver it.
