JP has combined two things that make sense...form and function. Claterpult Workshop is a small operation in historic Fort Langley, BC. At Claterpult, we design and build high quality hand-crafted furniture using responsibly sourced west coast species and reclaimed timber. The places you work and live are the back drop for our designs. Through the process of consultation and design, a one of a kind piece emerges.
Designer and builder. With an artistic eye, he is influenced by nature, mesmerized by wood grain, and seduced by the simplicity of Danish design. These influences continue to show up in his own creations. JP is a serial problem solver – supported by his ability to draw what he sees in his head and transform those drawings into products for his customers.
What is a CLATERPULT?
When JP started creating custom furniture he worked out of his garage. His young son, Charlie, would join him and play in the shop with his favourite toy catapult. Charlie was learning to talk and would talk about his claterpult as he played. JP would say "You pronounce it catapult" to which Charlie would respond "That's what I said Papa, claterpult".
The name stuck!
