Shop 31-B is a small-but-mighty custom woodworking shop located in Brantford's majestic Mayfair neighbourhood.
To Andrew, Pam, Jayne and Curtis Dukeshire, family is the business, with Jayne (11) and Curtis (8) regularly helping around the shop and learning new skills.
Andrew Dukeshire has always been heavily involved in the community. With a lifelong interest in creative woodworking, he saw a need for a more customizable approach to the industry with the customer's vision being paramount. 
The Dukeshires started Shop 31-B over the March Break in 2019. That summer, they sold over 450 custom wooden bottle openers. This inspired them to expand their offerings, always with an emphasis on "really cool woods" and premium quality materials. Their custom charcuterie boards are striking and sturdy statement pieces that will complement any decor.

Though gifts are some of their top-sellers, the creations that inspire them the most are the custom furniture pieces that really reflect the dreams of their clients. From side tables or coffee tables to larger pieces like BTOWN's 36 square foot boardroom table, Shop 31-B crafts each piece with attention and care.
