Our Story

From Falling to Processing to Woodworking

"My love for timber resulted in one of the most amazing adventures I’ve ever undertaken"

Mike Warburton started his career as a Westcoast Tree faller 30 years ago. He thrived on his passion, until his dreams were crushed in a helicopter crash in 1981.

He settled in Sooke and got involved in a small milling business to stay connected and regain his health. After learning and gaining experience Mike bought the place in 2001 and invested in new equipment. Sawmilling became another passion.

With 42 acre of property, Mike realized the potential of his property and refurbished a 40.000 square feet barn into a heavy duty industrial multipurpose building.

In 2010,  Mike set up a modern industrial size Wood workshop with industrial grad equipment. From now on Warburton Woodworks was able to meet its customers needs of all sorts of custom requests.

In 2017, Mike again invested again by introducing a state of the art moulder and a kiln.

Today, Warburton Woodworks offers a full circle of customer service. From falling trees, custom sawmilling, custom moulding and custom woodworking.

We are proud to employ more than employees who work with us for 16 years and more years to come.
