It all began with another hockey playoff loss. What to do with so much time on our hands? Steve took to fly fishing (which is great I understand down here in Southern Alberta) and Wes went out to his garage and his wood & tools. Seeing a large amount of cut-off and otherwise waste wood, Wes was distraught on the thought of just throwing it out or burning it (being of Scottish heritage). After watching some videos, it became apparent that there was something with these pieces of castoff wood and the new world of epoxy. A couple of learning pours and more toys bought, a passion was born! Steve liked what was done but said; go big or go home. We need to make some big-ass tables! Of course it helped that Stephanie and Steve needed a new kitchen table… And the partnership was born. There are four family members involved with Prairie Grain (officially credited) and we each have our own sphere of influence.
