It was supposed to be a surprise… but I couldn’t keep it to myself!

“I love the trunk!!!! It was supposed to be a surprise for Christmas for my husband but I couldn’t keep it to myself. He couldn’t believe it. I think he was emotional! The trunk is going to be displayed in our front entry so I suspect there will be admiration and inquiries from visiting members… Thank you so much for everything you do”

He was over the moon!

“We received the trunk on Friday. We hid it until we could plan a nice meal with family Saturday night.  I have to tell you that I have never seen my husband speechless.  He was over the moon.  He is a stickler for details, and he is super impressed with the trunk and the craftsmanship. Thank you for all that you have done.  This will be treasured through the generations.”

One of the most amazing things I’ve ever received!

“Let me start off by thanking you for crafting such a beautiful piece of art. My parents recently purchased a Classic Regimental Trunk for my 30th birthday and I must tell you that it is one of the most amazing things I’ve ever received. As I’m sure my mom already indicated, this piece is of significant meaning to me as I was a good friend of an RCMP member who lost his life. One of my memories was placing some special and sentimental pieces in their trunk which went to his family. I remember looking at it and admiring its perfection. I managed to organize all of my kit and collectibles into this trunk which complements our furniture nicely.”

~ Dave | Lower Mainland, BC

Absolutely amazing!

“Just wanted to send you a commendation regarding the trunk I ordered for my fiancé Adam. It is magnificent! Definitely above my expectations in every way. He was absolutely thrilled and everyone who comes over admires your high quality craftsmanship. Absolutely amazing. Worth the money and the wait.”

~ Edwina | Red Deer, AB

Something that will be cherished in our home for years

“The trunk is absolutely stunning! You are very talented at what you do. My husband (who never has an opinion) also thought it was amazing. He was completely surprised by it! Everybody that has seen it has commented how gorgeous it is. I know a couple of people have contacted you to be put on a list! I also know a few more that plan on contacting you in the near future :).  It is something that will be cherished in our home for years and will be passed on to one of our children.”

~ Jillian | Evansburg, AB

“No closet for this beauty”

“The trunk arrived safe and sound yesterday. I unpacked it this morning – what a packing job! It is beyond my expectations – what a beautiful piece of craft that will be cherished by me for a very long time. The detail, quality of the craftsmanship, and richness of the colour make it a wonderful piece. No closet for this beauty! Well worth the wait as often is the case with quality!”

~ Steve | Bedford, NS

“Even more beautiful than the pictures”

“Thank you so much for creating such a beautiful keepsake for my husband!!! It was like Christmas at our house … Even our 2 teenage daughters couldn’t get over how beautiful it was. It was even more beautiful than the pics!! Thank you again!”

~ Diane | Ottawa, ON

“Packing was second to none”

“I received the trunk last night. Packing was second to none. The trunk looks great, we are really happy with it. The custom stain is dark and rich, with just the right amount of visible grain and in fact is quite modern looking which is what we were looking for. Your dedication to the product and ensuring perfection is evident. I completely understand why the waiting list is what it is!! Take care and hopefully you keep doing this great work for other members to enjoy.”

~ Al | Manotick, ON

“It’s a work of art!”

“My husband opened his trunk today and was THRILLED!!! Happy to say that your packaging protected the trunk expertly. The trunk was well protected and arrived in perfect condition. The trunk is even more beautifully crafted than I had imagined. It’s a work of art. The time and care put into building this trunk is evident in the precision and finishing detail. This wonderful work of art will be an heirloom for generations.”

~ Debbie | Nunavut


“The Urn arrived just now. I opened the excellent packaging and so pleased with the Urn. It’s PERFECT. It has taken me along time finding just what I wanted until I found Barn and Stable. This is what I was looking for and I am more than pleased… thanks!! The workmanship is awesome.”

~ Marion | Melfort, SK

“I cannot thank you enough”

“Our urn arrived this morning and was in perfect condition. It was well packed and made it to us safely. I was so impressed with the finished product, it is lovely, the wood is finished beautifully and the crests and inscriptions look amazing. I cannot thank you enough for making this beautiful urn for us. I feel this urn is a very special place for our loved one’s ashes. I believe if he were here to see the urn, he would be proud to know that we tried to have a very special urn made just for him. He specifically asked us to make sure his ashes were in a wooden box with his family around him. I feel my family and I have worked with you to make this possible and to honour his wishes. Many thanks Russ. You can be proud of the wonderful work you did… It is especially meaningful to us. Take care and keep up the good work you are doing.”

~ Dawn, Carrie, and Brooke | Ajax, ON

“Pictures don’t do it justice!”

“We just received our urn this afternoon by FedEx. The wooden urn in the oak is beautiful, the pictures don’t do it justice, the craftsmanship is the finest we have ever seen. The badges and picture of us on the back look great too. You have been so good to deal with and very obliging, your suggestions were appreciated too. Thanks so much for everything!”

~ Gordon and Gayle | Lakefield, ON
