"Burns has been a delight to work with. He listened carefully as we described what we wanted. He worked collaboratively with us in the design of the pieces, offering creative suggestions that drew on his strong sense of design. His craftsmanship is clearly evident in the pieces he created. And he provided clear instructions about how to care for those pieces so we can enjoy them for years to come. We are very pleased, and recommend Burns without any hesitations."

"Thank you Burns for having your exceptional and unique custom art furniture in our gallery in the recent exhibition, “The Art of the Landscape” at the Ferry Building Gallery. Your work speaks to the natural landscape of the West-coast and I am in awe of the way in which you juxtapose the various types and shapes of wood and stone to create truly brilliant one-of-a-kind furniture. Our gallery patrons and the visiting public very much admired and appreciated your designs and craftsmanship"

"My name is Daniel Parke, and I am principal of Salal Architecture, a small design oriented architecture firm based on Bowen Island, near Vancouver. I have known Burns for over 3 years. I initially worked with him in the design and construction of his own house, and he has also built custom millwork and furniture in my own home.
I always enjoy working with Burns. He is a true craftsman. I meet many different trades on job sites, and Burns is one of a rare breed of highly talented craftsmen who are increasingly difficult to find. He is technically very good with wood, he understands design and aesthetics, is very detailed oriented, is very current with issues around sustainability, is very professional and is a great communicator.
I have no hesitation in recommending Burns Jennings.
