Welcome to the round table!

Welcome to the Raincoast Door Blog! Raincoast Door & Specialty Wood Products Inc. has been a supplier to cabinet makers, mill-workers and furniture makers for over 20 years. We represent a number of manufacturers in Canada and the USA and distribute products ranging from cabinet and passage doors through to butcher block counters, mouldings and in cabinet lighting.

We at Raincoast by no means profess to be experts but over the 15 years of working with the cabinet makers, interior finisher carpenters and the home construction trades of Vancouver Island we have come to know some very skilled and talented people who are. We have created this blog in an effort to share some of their insights and to create an open place for discussion for professionals and general home owners alike. We very much intend this to be an interactive forum and welcome anyone to post a question or comment. While we will be moderating this forum it is done in an effort to keep all of the information clean and user friendly. Please comment on any article that you see and feel free to contact us directly about any topics in particular that you would like discussed.
