About Prairie Cedar Creations


Prairie Cedar Creations by Darrell Pydde I was born an raised in Millet, Alberta. Studied Photography Technology at NAIT and worked in the photo in-dustry for over 30 years. I have enjoyed working with wood since childhood. A family friend was an avid woodworker and I was always fascinated with what he could create. Over the years I did woodworking off and on just for fun when time allowed. Over the last few years sitting in front of a computer all day working on photographs lost its appeal. I needed to be more active and creative. I started doing more wood projects for friends and family. As the projects in-creased I decided that I should maybe try to earn a few extra dollars so I started selling my products at local farmers markets. The number of orders started to grow and the variety of projects was never ending. Soon I would work my full time photography job, then rush home and spend another 6 or 7 hours working with wood. That was relaxation. So over the last 5 year wood working has morphed into a full time venture. I love the organic nature of wood, how it looks how it feels and the process that took a tiny tree into piece of wood that can be cut and milled and shaped into a never ending variety of objects. I can walk into my wood suppliers and instantly fall in love with a block of wood. Be it the grain, the shape, or the color I know instant-ly I have to have it. It may take a couple of years to finally decide what it will become, but that too is part of the process. Sooner or later a vision, an idea or a project evolves. Be it a small cedar box or a full sized dining room table I always feel a sense of pride when I deliver a project to a customer and know through their reaction that I did a good job. Darrell Pydde
