UPDATE: A message from the maker
September 18, 2019
As I am nearing my 1 year anniversary of officially beginning my journey into #makerlife, I wanted to take a little time to reflect upon what I have learned and how I think the CDN CRFT by Genuine North line has developed.
I can honestly say my skill and efficiency with my woodworking has improved leaps and bounds over the past year. It has allowed me to become more creative in my design, and craft new copper pipe displays and stands that draw the eye wherever they go. We’ve been blessed to receive nothing but positive feedback from our buyers and those who can’t help but stop at our market tables to check out the shinny things we have available.
I have made some wonderful additions over the past year, including; our copper pipe blanket ladders, paper towel holders, reclaimed wood + resin furniture, hand shaped wood growler lights, earring displays and more! I am looking forward to holiday collaborations with some of my new maker community/family/friends, and have been so grateful to have other makers reach out to me to help create displays for their amazing works.
Our Etsy store has sales, and considering the competition, being the wonderful international marketplace that it is, I think that is an accomplishment in itself! So we will keep on, keeping on and staying genuine. What will our focus be for 2020? Haven’t had time to sit down and have that heart to heart just yet, but we will be here, in one way or another. So stay in touch, and come see us at an upcoming market!

The line is called CDN CRFT and includes handcrafted and up-cycled items made from wood, resin, copper and more. Each piece is a work of passion, giving second life to gorgeous pieces of wood, each with it’s own story. Live edge wood pairs with the beautiful rose gold colouring of the copper pipe, providing a look that is both classy and industrial.
Lynne has created a line of gifts perfect for everyone in your life. The line started with Copper Pipe Jewelry Stands and resin coated craft beer coasters, and has since developed to include shirts, shelving and more. Hand screened designs are added to Canadian Made T-shirts, Made in USA Sweat shirts, wood trivets, acid-free high quality art paper prints and more.
