Naturally Wood is a partnership run by the husband-and-wife team of Robert and Kathy Jakobsen. Robert is the artisan who designs and creates the company’s product line while Kathy manages the administrative end of the business along with aiding Robert in new product design.
Robert has been working with wood since shortly after earning a B Sc. From the University of Victoria in 1990. Robert especially enjoys working with local woods and is very proud of the fact that a good portion of the wood he uses is salvaged locally on Vancouver Island with an eye to the sustainable use of the natural resources.
Initially Robert’s focus in woodwork was wooden boxes. More recently he has put more energy into furniture design and functional art. Robert especially likes to start the design process with the raw log, as it affords more opportunities for originality in the design process.
Robert is still very actively experimenting with new box designs but is looking forward to making custom one-of-a-kind pieces of furniture. All of his pieces are built with a focus on designs that blend function with form. His pieces are made with quality starting materials, proven joinery techniques and safe finishes to ensure what is built lasts a life time.
If you have an idea for a project please don’t hesitate to contact us we would love to hear from you.
