Wood Piles

ABOUT

Hi there! First off, I would like to thank you for taking the time to visit Taylor Ehrhardt Craftsmanship!

My name is Taylor Ehrhardt. I live in London, Ontario with my wife Caroline and our rescue husky Chuck. I'll start off by introducing myself in the way I'm most familiar - I am a track and field athlete. I have been doing this sport for over a decade and a half in hopes of reaching my ultimate goal - qualifying for the Olympics. I compete in an event called the decathlon, which is a series of 10 events over 2 days.

Now, you might be wondering where the woodworking comes in. Well, I started making cutting boards in the fall of 2019 as a way to help fund both mine and my wife's athletic pursuits (she is a triple jumper also training for the Olympics!). As unfunded high-level athletes, the expenses associated with training camps, competitions, treatment and equipment certainly presents challenges for us - but I believe we both work way too hard for lack of athletic funding or sponsorship (in short - money) to be the limiting factor for us on our journey to the Olympics.

And so, sometimes you just have to get creative! And that's how we ended up here. We are extremely grateful for everyone's support and encouragement both on the track and in the workshop, and we are so excited to showcase our work here on this site. Thanks for stopping by!
