NIAGARA BENCHES Niagara, ON 2018

We're thrilled with the new set of historically accurate benches we recently engineered and built for Niagara Parks. Our benches feature the exact same profile as the originals, but with Kebony provide a whole new level of durability. Read more →

1880 FARMHOUSE Innerkip, ON 2018

“Each deck board required cutting a custom curve on one end and being scribed to the stone wall on the other. The Kebony was nice to work with as it cut cleanly and kept a crisp-looking edge even after being cut with a jigsaw and filed extensively to fit tight against the stone. When crosscutting with a miter saw there was little blow-out or tearing as long as a sharp blade was used — surprisingly it didn't dull my blades as quickly as when I use cedar. Crosscuts did require more time and pressure — I would compare it to cutting hard maple — although the Kebony doesn't take on burn marks the way maple does, which was nice. Ripping Kebony, on the other hand, went incredibly quickly with zero blow-out on either side and I would liken it to running clear dry pine through my table saw.” —Keelan, Martin Design Group

LONG BRANCH PORCH Etobicoke, ON 2018

“I really and truly love the result. The wood is absolutely beautiful. So glad I found and went with Kebony instead of Ipe or thermally-modifieds.” —Franc Gregorin

FRIDAY HARBOUR Innisfil, ON 2018

“We enjoyed using Kebony wood on the Beach Club at Friday Harbor. It was easy to work with given that it’s clear wood (free of knots), consistently and reliably flat and straight. This made our installation time very efficient when compared to other woods such as IPE.” —Rob Tayler, Hawkins Contracting

ILLUSUAK CULTURAL CENTRE Labrador 2018

“I do like the natural color of the product and it is very easy to work with using standard tools. I would and did recommend your product to a few of our clients as an alternative to cement board siding. Overall I think it's a great product." —Dale Kent, Bird Construction Architect: Todd Saunders Photos: Wayne Broomfield

LAKESIDE OASIS Thornburry, ON 2018

“We finished up a really nice project in July with the Kebony and I have attached a couple images to show you our work. Really love this decking, and confident we will be selling lots more of it in the future.” —Luke Williams, Williams Outdoors

STRUCTURECRAFT EXTERIOR LOGO British Columbia 2018

“North on Sixty provided us with excellent service and the best product for the application. We used Kebony for the outdoor company sign on our new manufacturing shop in Abbotsford, and have been very pleased with the look and durability.” —Gerald, StructureCraft Builders

RIVERDALE DIY FRONT PORCH Toronto 2018

“The selection of Kebony vs IPE was an easy one — with its rich look and easy workability for a DIY front porch project. Yuill and the team at North on Sixty made it really fun, delivered the wood and gave us some helpful tips and tricks. Overall the project took about 40hrs and was easily done over a few casual summer weekends. We love the look and final results - highly recommend Kebony and the North on Sixty team support.” —Paul

RIVER VALLEY FUNICULAR Edmonton 2017

The City of Edmonton has long sought to improve connectivity for the public between urban areas and the North Saskatchewan River valley. The urban staircase and funicular in this River Valley Access Concept Engineering study offer an exciting opportunity to access and experience Edmonton’s ribbon of green. The City of Edmonton envisions the project as an opportunity for great urban design, embracing the river valley into our everyday lives. The project offers the potential to be an entrance to the river valley for everyone, regardless of age and ability, and a focal point that will bring people together in the heart of Edmonton. It allows Edmontonians to become tourists in their own backyard. Architect: Dialog Photos: Brock Kryton Read more →

SEATON BACKYARD Toronto 2017

ONTARIO PLACE PUBLIC WASHROOMS Toronto 2017

“Trillium Park and William G. Davis Trail draws inspiration from the geologic and vegetative landscapes across Ontario. Escarpments, ravines and drumlin hills are interpreted to create a natural refuge on the shoreline of Toronto. The washroom building at the entrance to the park was designed and detailed to compliment the inspirational Ontario narrative through the selection of a an integral, natural exterior material palette. Located on the shores of Lake Ontario it was crucial the selection withstand exposure to the highly varied seasonal changes. Working with North on Sixty, LANDinc chose to specify Kebony for the washroom's custom vertical batten facade. Selected as a solution to both aesthetic and performance requirements, the durability of Kebony paired with dimensionally stable properties would ensure the vertical battens remain true without warping or splitting. Installed in a raw untreated form, it was sought after to use a product that would age naturally to a silver-grey patina all while eliminating any future surface maintenance for the client. At LANDinc we are encouraged by the durable characteristics and sustainable aspirations of Kebony timber, continuing to specify it on a variety of Landscape and Architectural projects.” —Bruce, LANDinc

MODERN BACK DECK Toronto 2017

“We chose Kebony for this unique walk-out deck for its health and environmental considerations as well as its low-to-no maintenance long-life properties. However, it was the beauty of the product itself that really sold us. With the prominent grain patterns and rich silver that it ultimately attains, this was a good choice for a walk-out structure that had to perform as a centerpiece for a new addition, and act not only as a staircase, but also as a planter and piece of furniture.  
We were very pleased with the quality of the boards we received – free of flaws, and smooth as glass. Being one of the first projects in our city to use Kebony, the carpenter was initially hesitant to use a new product, but was quick to declare how great it was to work with. Working with the team at North on Sixty was a pleasure, and we are looking forward to the next project where we can do so again.” —Eric Gordon, Principal, Landscape Architect, Optimicity

PASTÈQUE DOCK Quebec 2017

“Our dock is wonderful, looks and feels like a hardwood floor!” —André Fauteux

LOVLIN PHILLIPS FRONT PORCH LATTICE Toronto 2018

“We were intrigued with Kebony for a number of reasons. We wanted a durable material that would outlast cedar, require little or no maintenance, and be sustainable. Ipe was not a consideration given its impact on the South American rainforests, and the difficulty of tracking the supply chain for FSC lumber.  As the lattice is part of a load-bearing wall, taking it apart after 5 or even 10 years was not on the table. Kebony is as workable as any soft lumber product. It looks great, and as a result we’ve met more neighbors in the few months since it was built than in the previous 15 years. We’re very likely to use the material again for our deck replacement.” —Jarle Lovlin (2’x6’x8’ stacked Kebony)

TRANSCONA AQUATIC PARK CHANGE ROOMS Winnipeg 2017

“We had purchased the Kebony wood from your shop a couple years ago. It is a very beautiful lumber, easy to work with. Everyone seeing the finished building loves the look. The client decided to leave it natural and let it slowly turn grey as cedar would do. They also had the option to put a quoting on so that it will stay the same
color. To this day, the Kebony has not split or warped—not one call-back. We will definitely use Kebony from your shop in the future when architects spec Kebony.” —John, National Carpentry Installation

BALMORAL BACKYARD Toronto 2016

“We wanted a cottage in our back yard; North on Sixty gave us that and more—now we have an oasis. While others have to endure the 400 to get to their cottages, we simply stroll outside. And we can enjoy it during the week as well. While we had the overall idea, it was Yuill who brought it to life, combining creative solutions with high quality and attention to detail. The end result is simply stunning.” —Marcus, Owner Read more →

FORT CHIPEWYAN Alberta 2015

“The Kebony wood looks as good today as the day it was installed (summer 2015). Our maintenance crews used steel ice chisels on it as well as plastic snow shovels and we also used salt and other ice melters with no visible change in the wood, except for the fade to gray.” —Ernest Thacker, Manager of Operations for Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo

MULMUR HILLS FRONT DECK Mulmur, ON 2018

“Every piece of Kebony was beautiful and useful, there were no defect pieces at all. It was really easy to install using the Camo Fastening system and the tech support from North on Sixty was top notch, providing onsite assistance with a number of quality tips we used to help ensure we were efficient right from the start.” —Richard Brunskill, Carpenter
