I don’t do customer reviews very often (even though I should), but I felt it was important to do one for Bram and his company. He is a wonderful craftsman, who is innovative and cares deeply about his work and customers.
I had a unique project that I couldn’t get done. I wanted 90, yes 90, park and river names engraved on 3 paddles. A gift for my wife celebrating all the canoe trips we had done. It was December and I wanted it for Christmas.
“Too Funny” and “Not Possible” was the typical response from people I spoke to. That was until I dropped into Bram’s Merrickville shop. He listened intently to what I wanted to get done. He asked a few expert questions, made a few excellent suggestions that I had not thought of and then said; “90 names engraved on 3 paddles in 2 weeks before Christmas...let’s give it a try..”
Bram was back in short order with the first of 3 paddles done. It was exactly what I was looking for so he finished other 2 in time for the tree. It was wonderful gift and my wife was very pleased.
Btw while all this was going on Bram was in the process of building a new shop (which is awesome) and he did a ton of running around to help me find someone to paint and finish the paddles as well.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Bram and if you want quality and innovation in wood working he is the man.
I just brought home a beautiful custom coffee table built by Bram. From our first meeting to the completion of my furniture, he was delightful to work with and has created a piece of furniture that I will cherish for many years.
Stylish design, never loose your keys and also great for keeping your sun glasses near the door. Quality product!
I own 3 of Brams spoons and they are wonderful, they are definitely an item I use in my kitchen every day.
Proud owner of a Bram D'Hoest Credenza, the quality of Brams wood work is amazing. You will not be disappointed with his craftsmanship and customer service.
Our baby loves playing with the rattle! and I love that its safe! thanks Bram!!
We received one of Bram’s rattles for our little one at our baby shower - our baby absolutely loves it!! Looks beautiful, so smooth and has a lovely feel. Already given several as gifts for friends having babies.
As a labour and delivery nurse it’s important to me to promote safe and wonderful products to my friends, family, and patients! I absolutely love this safe, clean, and fun rattle. It’s my go-to present for baby showers! Highly recommend!!
We contacted Bram to have him make a custom sized coffee table for our small condo. He was quick to reply, and offered great suggestions on sizing and leg length. Fast forward a few weeks, and we are thrilled with the new addition to our home. The craftsmanship and care that went into this table are immediately apparent. The finish is smooth like butter! Bram also offered notes on how to care for the wood which has been very helpful. Kudos!
