Keith Watson Woord Artisan

A passion for woodworking, thirty years in the making.

Keith Watson Wood Artisan Canoeing

In 2022, I embarked on a career change to pursue my two passions- woodworking and whitewater canoe guiding, instruction and outfitting.  I spend the summer months in the Northwest Territories, Nunavut and Northern Ontario where I share my knowledge, skills and enjoyment of whitewater with canoeists of all ages and experience levels.

The rest of the year is spent in my workshop in Kawartha Lakes where I design, build and finish custom wood tables, benches, cabinets and small home goods.  In addition to a college diploma in furniture woodworking and finishing, I have over thirty years of experience as a woodworker.  I look forward to hearing from you and to working together to transform your ideas into quality, timeless pieces that you will enjoy for many years to come. 

I also make and install wood gunnels on canoes, as well as, whitewater outfitting by Mike Yee.

Nice to meet you

Get a timeless piece, made with passion.
