Having settled in the rural, woodland community of Metchosin just west of Victoria, Detlef has been inspired to create a range of fine woodworking, from small functional items, such as cutting boards, to unique boxes, to one-of-a-kind furniture pieces.
"I believe in the natural beauty of wood, and use primarily solid wood in my creations. Many of my pieces are made of locally sourced wood. I focus on both the technical, with traditional construction techniques, as well as the aesthetic, with designs that complement the wood and vice versa. Incorporating clean lines, curves and natural shapes along with the finest, silkiest finish are a signature of my style."
