Against the Grain Outdoors is a small wood business owned and created by Andrew and myself (Shannon). We are not only business partners but life partners as well. We live in the small town of Lanark Ontario with our dog cooper.
We opened Against the Grain in March 2021 and it as took off beyond our imagination. It all started when Andrew stumbled upon a video of someone woodcarving on YouTube. A thought crossed his mind where said to himself maybe I should try that. With work being slower at our usual construction job Andrew decided to pick up his chainsaw and give it a shot. He began to carve his first bear… and well needless to say this is where we ended up.
Andrew is our chainsaw artist and the one that ensures everything is done to a high standard! He is the hands on part of the team! Shannon is the person that answers all your questions, takes care of all social media and schedules projects to get done ! Also the one you are more likely to see at the markets! We work together to ensure your vision is brought to life!
We love a challenge, no carving can be too big! We offer on-site carvings where the carving will be completed on a tree at your location. Or we can customize a carving of your choice to pick up locally.
Customized live edge or dimensional lumber orders to your needs. Mobile bandsaw milling that can mill up to 22″ round and 16′ long. Our chainsaw mill can mill up to 37″ round and unlimited length. Please note prices vary depending on location.
