As a graduate of the Algonquin College Cabinetmaking and Furniture Technician course, Spartan Rubacha wasted no time in founding the Flook D. Doo business. After setting up shop in Poland, Ontario, he began creating furniture and children's toys, amongst other projects, with artistic flare.

His pieces are beautiful AND functional, while maintaining a minimalist approach, relying on the natural grain of the wood for inspiration and visual impact. Greatly inspired by the work of James Krenov, Flook D. Doo Furniture is described as modern renaissance art, and aspires to lead the woodworking world into a new era of rustic, yet refined furniture that not only looks striking, but sounds like solid work when items are placed atop the surface.

Flook D. Doo works together with their clients to accomplish a design that the customer will appreciate for years to come, as well as designing pieces independently that appeal to a wide range of tastes. They work in hard and soft woods, often combining different species for visual effect.

Poland, Ontario is located in the Lanark Highlands, approximately 1 hour from Ottawa.

Re: Klein Cabinet

I just wanted to add that I'm very careful to take my time with my dovetails. I use a great amount of care when laying them out, then continue to lay them out as I cut them to ensure a good fit. In my opinion, well executed dovetails is one of the best measures of a good cabinetmaker. I'd like to thank you again for reminding me that I should be calling attention to the fact that my dovetails are hand-cut. As a woodworker I tend to assume that everyone cuts them by hand, so as a result, I've added captions to my dovetail pics stating them as such.

Thank you once more for your comment,

Spartan R.

Re: Klein Cabinet

Wow, what a nice compliment. Those ARE hand cut dovetails. Thanks for the comment.

Re: Herring Case

Wow, this is beautiful. Are the "vertical" drawers just deep, or is there something else going on inside?

Re: Beaumont Chest

Thanks bassrock,

The Scotch Line is the road that connects Perth, ON to Westport, ON., where the woodworker lives from whom I bought the cherry.
