Don Shepard Custom Furniture
After retiring from owning his business, Shepard Excavating, Inc.of Dexter, of over thirty years, Don decided to keep busy by building things with the wood that he collected over the years from his property. This became a hobby that others started to notice as Don made special pieces for friends and family. This hobby has turned into Don being a regular supplier at Boxwood. Being a business owner himself, he understands the passion it takes to build a successful business and sees that in Boxwood.
Michigan designer-builder, Randall Torno, presents a unique line of custom-built lightweight canoes utilizing exotic and locally sourced wood, hand selected for color and grain. Torno Boatworks canoes are handcrafted works of art, utilizing a unique design that incorporates functional flowing lines from bow to stern. Premium western red cedar strips are individually hand fitted and subsequently encapsulated in fiberglass and epoxy, creating a lightweight and strong hull. Finishing trim wood is selected to compliment the cedar hull. Multiple coats of marine varnish are applied to protect the wood and give an impressive gloss finish.
