Creating this Website

Creating this website felt like creating a work of art – and that is exactly what we feel this website has become as we share the stories of Yvette Moore, her family and all the artisans we showcase in our incredible historical building. Take your time as you browse through all the pages and especially the videos of 11 of our artisans as they welcome us all into their studios and display the passion of what makes them create their works, tell their stories. With the support of Tourism Saskatchewan, we feel that we have accomplished what we were striving for – to educate our viewers about the creative space that our artisans live and breath in as they passionately hand make their works of art.

Derevo Design’s resin cribbage boards are made from premium Canadian big leaf maple burl and stunning resin, in a variety of colors. Each piece of wood is harvested in British Columbia and hand selected for these boards based on exceptional character and color.

The boards are CNC cut which ensures the pattern is perfectly spaced and aligned. We finish with a blend of natural oils to ensure consistent quality and a luxurious feel. No dyes or stains are used in the production of our boards.

These boards are created by husband and wife team, Sean and Lindsay Derevo from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

 

A passion for wood got us here

ARTIST STATEMENT

We are a small woodworking shop located in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, right in the heart of the Canadian prairies. My name is Sean, and my wife Lindsay and I run Derevo Designs. I got my introduction to woodworking in high school shop class like many people did. We didn’t build anything overly memorable, but it laid a good foundation for me to build from later in life.

When Lindsay and I married in 2016, I was tasked to build a “card box” for our reception. It had been about 10 years since I had done any serious woodworking, but I picked up right where I left off and completed the task. From here, I started to take on a few more projects at home. Our bathroom renovation featured a built in wall cabinet which I built from scratch. I then tackled a wall of cabinets in my shop that turned out nicer than a lot of kitchens! I kept working on these projects and started running into issues finding a good supplier for hardwood lumber. Saskatoon doesn’t have a lot of lumber suppliers that cater to woodworkers, and I became frustrated with the poor selection and high prices I was seeing locally. I took this as an opportunity to build relationships with wood suppliers. I started with local wholesalers to nail down a steady supply of good quality domestic hardwoods, then over the next few years I branched out to find suppliers of specialty woods. I have a huge passion for wood with character, which includes burl, figured wood, and other wood products from around the world. We buy some of the finest wood from around the world, and use it in our products.

When you purchase a product from us, you are buying the end result of a story written by passion. I hand pick many of the logs and burls we use directly from the sawyers who cut them from the forest. Some of our burl comes from as far as Australia, and takes 3 months by ocean to arrive in Canada. Each piece for sale on our site, whether a crib board, cutting board, or even a playing card holder is made and designed by us. Each sale we make goes right back to the business and helps us grow and evolve. We become better every year, and it wouldn’t be possible without the support of those who like our products enough to own one. Thanks for taking the time to read, and please send us a message if you have any questions, or you want to chat! – Sean & Lindsay

The boards measure 4″x12″ and have 1/8″ holes. The included pegs are made from brass, stainless steel, copper, and blackened steel (colors may vary from what is shown). The pegs come with a custom designed holder to fit Derevo Designs cribbage boards.

 

 

Due to the unique nature of the boards, every board is one-of-a kind.
