Bernard          A Collection of Solid Wood Articles made from Exquisitely Figured

From Trees to Tables

The RVH Maple Trees were located at the exact location where the new Simcoe-Muskoka Regional Cancer Treatment Centre at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Barrie is under construction right now.

What better way to make use of these Maple Trees but to give the wood a Second Life as furniture, such as a harvest table, a dining table, a coffee table, an end table, wall decor, shelving for trophies, etc., etc. in your home or office.


Each Item made or commissioned will include a signed Certificate of Authenticity

Some examples of items made so far are shown below

This Table was donated to the RVH Crystal Classic Gala Fundraiser held this past June the 6th.  The purchaser of this fine

 table in turn donated it again to be placed in the Cancer Centre some time in the near future so that everyone else

 may enjoy its beautiful warm glowing "maple syrup" colour, texture and appearance.


 This Table has now started its Second Life and will be placed in almost the same exact location

as where the tree was planted many, many years ago.


 A sincere thank you to the donor.


The "Crystal Classic" is a Premier Golf and Gala Event of the region raising more than $1.8 million for the RVH over the years.
