Relic Woodworks is a wood salvager, lumber supplier and custom furniture builder based in Edmonton, AB. Established in January 2015, Relic is run and operated by two passionate creatives and tinkerers, Eric Jensen and Laurelle Miciak. Effective summer 2018, we are now able to offer log salvage services in the Greater Vancouver and Lower Mainland area of British Columbia.

Our goals? To save once loved trees and to build a reuse culture in the local wood industry rather than go down the road of deforestation. We aim to save as many fallen trees as possible, to transform them into practical and beautiful goods, and to replant new trees to create a loop of net-zero to net-positive impact on the environment and in our communities.

We love working with local woods—elm, maple, oak—creating unique slabs and pucks for your own designs. We've also begun building new forests by raising seedlings with the hopes of planting at least one tree for every one that finds its way to our mill. Full circle. From tree to table.

Join us on our journey as we discover what we can do with nature's fallen relics.


The Team

  Eric + Relic = almost an anagram!   Meet me, Eric Jensen.  I’m a builder, permaculturist and an artist. I salvage wood from beloved homes and urban lots. And design with local in mind.  Nature is my catalyst, and through it, I craft for function—giving old wood new life. I save trees, and with them create new designs and ways of looking at our environment.  Passion has brought me here. To old growth and young forests in Alberta, where I can build a community of artisans, crafters and dreamers with the relics left behind.

  Laurelle visiting with a Triceratops in Drumheller, AB.    My curiosity is boundless. From words to sounds to seeds, I've shaped my world by following what inspires me.   Along the way, I've found expression as a musician, translator, and advertising copywriter—always bridging the gap between medium and message. In addition to working at Relic, I currently teach at Edmonton's Sarah McLachlan School of Music, a music mentorship program for underserved youth.   Being part of a business that impacts positively on the environment and collaborating with other creatives is what keeps me going! You'll find me around Edmonton, singing and playing instruments, and in the summer, gardening as much as Edmonton's brief growing season allows.
