My name is Wade Daboll, and I live on a bicentennial farm in Ridgeville – actually a postal route in the small town of Pelham located in the Niagara region of Ontario, Canada. Growing up on the farm I was used to beams and wood with our primary barn which was moved on site during the depression after a fire burned down the original. Erected with teams of horses and a gin pole was far trickier than the cranes we use today to stand up "bents" of the frame. My great grandfather Cook an exceptional barn builder and my granddad had told me how he cut compound mitres and bracing that fit every time and the quality of construction was the result. Seeing the workmanship was always an inspiration. Beams sawn from American Chestnut (now and endangered species)were the main structure with some as deep as 22" thick.
In 1987 when a Tornado ripped through our woodlot and took down over 600 trees my dad John decided to purchase a sawmill to harvest and make use all the nice wood and the rest is history. My then only hobby of woodworking led me to begin expanding projects that involved the newly available timbers and post and beam construction methods. With a keen eye for specialty wood, good deals and a sense of what people might like, I also began to grow and inventory my collection of unique pieces for the ever-growing wood demand. Over the years the wide-ranging collection grew from a hobby into a full-fledged business.
