Custom Fine Furniture by Todd Searles
Oak Hills Custom Furniture is a small woodworking shop that builds custom, one off, heirloom pieces for our clients.
Not your average guy
Born and raised in the local area, Todd learned the majority of his craft while growing up on a 200-acre farm located on Oak Hill
Lake, near Stirling, Ontario. He spent summers working on the family farm and various construction firms in the area. Easy access to lumber from the farm, including Cherry, Oak, Maple and Pine influenced Todd’s desire to work with
wood at an early age, and has continued throughout his life.
Todd later attended Lake Head University in Thunder Bay, Ontario and obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering. He continued to build and design furniture pieces after moving back to the area while working in Global manufacturing and various high tech industries for several years.
Todd’s workshop, just East of Stirling in Thurlow Ward, now accommodates a well equipped woodworking studio.
Hear From Our Customers
When we moved to our new home we had an empty mud room that was not very functional.
We had Todd build a bench into one side of the room. He listened carefully to our thoughts and then created a bench that is not only beautiful but extremely functional. Due to Covid it was built in his shop based on measurements provided but to my amazement when it was delivered it slipped seamlessly into place. I would use him again in a heartbeat.
