About Us

Rise and Run Wood crafting is owned and operated by Eric Ensor of Shelburne, Nova Scotia.

Eric began his career at the age of 12, working with his father. His skills and talents in fine wood
joinery have taken him across the country and even Europe in pursuit of his quest for knowledge in all things wood.

His 40 years in the industry have encompassed New Home Construction, Cabinetry, Kitchens, Custom Furniture,
and his specialty, custom designed and manufactured spiral stair cases, in both local and exotic woods.

Eric is a perfectionist, and this trait can be seen in all he does, whether it be
a small jewellery box or Humidor, to the most elegant of multi level Curved Stairways.

"I still after all these years enjoy the smell and texture of wood," says Eric. "
And being able to take an idea from a piece of rough wood to the finished product.
When the client walks into their home and sees their new curved stairway or
Kitchen, and to experience the pleasure this brings them, is my largest reward.

Eric lives in Ohio, just outside of Shelburne, Nova Scotia, with his wife Donna,
which is also home to his 3000 foot cabinet shop.
