"Burns has created four pieces of custom art furniture for my wife and I. We are absolutely delighted with each piece. The process of designing the pieces with Burns was very satisfying and, frankly, a lot of fun. Burns and I used Facetime on our phones to setup a video link between my home in Nanaimo and Burn’s workshop on Bowen Island. Burns could see the space where the piece was going to be placed and was able to absorb and incorporate that into his design. I was able to watch the piece progress and offer feedback as if I was standing in his shop. Burns made sure that every detail was considered. The final products are a seamless blend of form and function. We have spent a considerable amount of time admiring the beautiful quality of the craftsmanship, but the really cool thing is that the rooms in which these pieces live “feel” better. I guess that is the art part. If you are looking for beautiful and organic custom art furniture created in a timely and consultative manner, Burns is the artist for you. Gotta have a Burns Jennings!"
"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."

"“Having seen Burns’ work displayed elsewhere on Bowen Island, we initially contacted him to make a new live edge shelf for the display of a native art etching. We also enquired about possible wall display options for our kitchen, for which he ultimately created a unique burl maple wall plaque. Both works have proven to be stunning in their execution.
Burns demonstrated a professional approach to the projects while possessing a strong creative vision. He was very supportive of incorporating our input and we are pleased to provide our recommendation.”
