Swaine Street Woodworking is the creation of local crafter Jana Bookholt. Jana is a NSCAD graduate who became interested in woodworking after taking a course in cabinetry at NSCC. In just over a year, she has participated in many craft shows, and is now selling her work at several local retailers, and a few in Ontario. She’s also been invited to attend the Toronto International Film Festival this fall to represent her work in the AMC gift lounge. This girl is on fire- take a look at her beautiful work and you’ll understand why!
Crafting a cutting board or charcuterie board involves milling down rough cut lumber, cutting it to size, gluing all the pieces together then sanding. The images that adorn some of her boards are Jana’s own designs that she draws on by hand with a burning pen.
We have several Swaine Street maple boards in the shop, which are extremely durable, beautiful, and provide an excellent work surface. We also carry Beeswax Polish, and Rosemary Lemon Cutting Board Oil, both hand made in small batches by Jana. These products work wonders to protect and restore wooden cutting boards, bowls, utensils and more.
