Jeff has lived and worked in the Muskoka region for over thirty years. He started his career as a carpenter while also doing woodworking on the side, but eventually moved to an industrial environment where he fabricated and installed custom pieces, like stairs and cabinetry.
Over time, Jeff came to understand the degree of unnecessary waste occurring on construction sites that resulted from substandard-grade, poorly milled, or inadequately dried materials. Part of the problem, he realized, was that the people milling the wood had never installed it. Jeff spied his niche as a millworker-installer with superior quality standards, and soon built a strong reputation locally as a skillful craftsman with uncompromising standards. But while his success has often led others to advise him to expand in search of bigger, better, faster profits, Jeff keeps in mind something his dad used to say: “Stick with what got you to the dance.”
Today, while the LaserTrim team still does some commercial and wholesale work for the lumber industry, Jeff’s passion for fine custom millwork and woodworking brings LasterTrim together with clients, designers, and projects that engage his artistry and invigorate his craftsmanship. And that’s just where he wants to be.
