Sawmill & Home Grown Timber

Claudio has 20+ years of carpentry experience. He is self-employed and offers construction services throughout the South Cariboo.  


At Big Sky Ranch, Claudio harvests wood from the land.  He works mostly with Douglas fir.  Claudio has set up his own sawmill on the property, where he processes the wood into planks and boards using a Woodland Mills Bandsaw.  The boards he cuts are stacked with spilts in between for air circulation, and stand outside for a year to cure.  He then uses the boards for creative projects.

Inspiration & Creative Projects

Claudio's prepared wooden boards are used to build large-scale projects such as farmyard shelters. Or, he transforms the wood into intricate knick knacks, such as decorative hearts and angels, and into functional objects like cutting boards or keepsake boxes.  Claudio appreciates how each board of wood presents unique grains and patterns, which in his mind's eye determines the kind of objects that he creates.  Claudio attributes his love for wood to his childhood, when he spent time learning carpentry skills from his grandfather.
