Fernie Woodcrafters was established in 2020 as the British Columbia head office for Canmore Woodcrafters, which was founded in 1979. Owner Brian Salzgeber now resides in Fernie BC and looks forward to sharing the company’s quality craftsmanship and experience throughout the Elk Valley and the rest of BC.
Every day, Canmore Woodcrafters’ number one goal is to make the very best products available anywhere. We do that by surrounding ourselves with an amazing team; people who “set the bar” and embody standards we all aspire to live up to.
MINIMIZING OUR ENVIRONMENTAL FOOTPRINT
We strive to be the kind of workplace that attracts good people, who display a positive attitude and treat people right. People who take their health and the health of our planet seriously. We believe in leading by example—but we learn just as much by living up to the ideals of the quality people we work with.
The Canmore Woodcrafters team is committed to going the extra mile for our customers. The pursuit of excellence is key. The best products come from long-term thinking, never making assumptions about a customer’s needs, and a genuine desire to understand and meet expectations from the very beginning.
The ability to be responsive and adaptive is crucial to Canmore Woodcrafters’ success. We take pride in finding solutions to the problems our customers are trying to solve. We capitalize on our team’s diverse skill sets, and take a calculated yet flexible approach to projects. We demonstrate that same flexibility in the scheduling of that work, listening closely to our customers as we do so.
MINIMIZING OUR ENVIRONMENTAL FOOTPRINT
Living and working in a community where the beauty of nature is visible everywhere, we are inspired to preserve it. This goes beyond our daily practices of recycling everything possible. We create quality products worthy of being heirlooms, products that only need to be built once and won’t need to be disposed of; something all too common in today’s world.
“I had the pleasure of partnering with Canmore Woodcrafters for a very large high end project in Fernie that encompassed a lot of custom work over many years. Brian was so amazing to work with because he is professional, detailed, timely, design savvy and enthusiastic. Working with him was seamless and the craftsmanship of the products were precise. From drawings to installation, it could not have gone any smoother every time! The quality of their work is beautiful and their ability to deliver on custom details is incredible. It is exciting to see Brian bringing this quality woodwork option to the Elk Valley through Fernie Woodcrafters. I highly recommend Brian and Fernie Woodcrafters to anyone.“Sue HutchinsonInspired Spaces Design | Décor | Staging
“Fernie Woodcrafters completed a custom hand railing project for us. Made from knotty Alder, with a custom stain match, as well as a fireplace mantle. Working with their team was seamless from drawings to install, and the quality of work is excellent. S2 builders would not hesitate to use Fernie Woodcrafters again in the future.Adam, S2 firstname.lastname@example.org

I worked with “Canmore Woodcrafters” on a large project both as the designer and an installer. I found the shop very professional, with great communication through the entire process of shop drawings, problem solving, and construction. Their work came to site exactly when we wanted it, so it did not delay the site schedule, the workmanship was top quality and well thought out for easy site installation. I also noted a great quality finish on the cabinets which were both colored lacquer, and custom stain on solid wood. Overall I would highly recommend Fernie Woodcrafters for any custom millwork project, you wont be disappointed!Mark Kover, Calu Designsmark@caludesigns.com250 430 7233
