About Christina

Christine Hilborne-071611 copycropMy career as a furniture maker began in Vancouver with a rather paper editor service ugly box.

One spring day, years ago, my roommate and I needed a receptacle for our recycling. We were conscientious citizens, though poor ones at the time. Thus, we – meaning me – would have to make one.

I had never actually built anything before. However, after a successful trip to the local hardware store, I learned how to cut up rough pine planks with a handsaw, hand-drill holes, and hand-drive screws. The result was an actual functioning box with a hinged lid! Not pretty, but it worked – it ghostwriter masterarbeit kosten was the most gratifying project I had ever undertaken.

After this experience, I immediately enrolled in a Benchwork and Joinery program at the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT), and I haven’t stopped creating since.

My designs today are the result of twenty years of learning from many talented and inspiring people – of all ages, from all over the world – coupled with a deep-seated ethic of caring for our planet.

My goal: to create unique, provocative and functional furniture that doesn’t cost the earth.

To your good taste.
