With a name like Bath Built, you may think that we’re plumbers rather than custom furniture craftsmen. So, what’s the story behind the name? While we’d love to tell you an amusing anecdote, it’s really pretty simple: our company was established by Chris Bath. And when Chris saw an opportunity to turn his passion for woodworking into a high-end, solid wood custom furniture business, he knew he wanted to produce a product that he was proud to have attached to his name.
What started out as a one-man operation in Chris’ garage has evolved into a talented team that shares his commitment to innovation and quality. While we’ve outgrown the garage, we’re still proudly local and currently operate our warehouse and showroom in the vibrant community of Abbotsford, British Columbia.
We’re thrilled to offer an extensive collection of original designs (from bed frames and buffets, to credenzas and corner desks) all of which are meticulously crafted from solid wood and fully-customizable. Simply choose the size, material and stain and leave the rest to us. If you don’t see exactly what you’re looking for, our team is happy to work with you to bring your unique vision into reality!
Our customers are very important to us and it was undeniable that a showroom was necessary to better serve their needs. We’re located in historic downtown Abbotsford, British Columbia which boasts a vibrant mix of shops and services, so why not make a day of it? Grab some brunch or a coffee and donut, then pop by our showroom to chat with our friendly customer service team about your project. Here, we can go over your ideas, walk you through our process, then review your options for wood, stain and hardware. We can’t wait to meet you!

Here at Bath Built we take pride in the fact that all of our solid wood pieces are built locally by our team here in Abbotsford. We purchase all our lumber from a local supplier as we are all about supporting our community!
All of our solid wood furniture products are handcrafted using the best materials and woodworking techniques. This includes the use of multiple high-precision planing, jointing, and wood cutting tools to ensure perfectly square and flat stock to work with. Doing this, accompanied with proper wood joinery and design methods, allows our custom wood furniture to be very stable, with low chance of adverse changes over time.
We sand, stain, and seal each solid wood furniture piece to have a smooth finish. We offer a vast selection of stain options shown on different wood types on our stains and materials page. We also have samples available to view in person in our Showroom at 33789 Essendene Ave in Downtown Abbotsford. Each piece of custom handmade wood furniture is finished with a food safe water based polyeurethane that is impact and scratch resistant, and will hold up to heat and liquid spills.
Bath Built offers a variety of custom furniture sizes and stain options, however feel free to contact us us and we can quote you for a custom piece to suit your needs!
Our solid wood custom furniture pieces are sealed with very durable water based polyeurethane clear coats. During the first two weeks of receiving your furniture the finish will still be curing to its maximum hardness, so extra care should be taken during this time. Though the finish is resistant to heat, liquid spills and stains, we recommend the following precautions are taken to increase the life span of the product:
A non-refundable 50% deposit is required on all custom solid wood furniture pieces upon ordering. In some cases, a refund may be possible, however it is at our discretion. We will send you an e-invoice to re-cap your order and it will have an easy “pay now” option for the deposit, however we also accept other forms of payment.
Contact us for current wait time (usually between 5-8 weeks).
We offer a flat rate delivery fee of $150 within the Lower Mainland. This is a white glove service that includes move in and set up from two representatives. Please contact us for delivery information and fees for other areas!
Prices are subject to change at any time.
All of our custom furniture products are handmade from solid wood. We recommend our customers have a good understanding of what to expect from solid wood furniture before purchasing. While we strive for perfection, your solid wood product will have its own unique charachteristics such as small knots or cracks. The variations and imperfections in the wood are to be expected and celebrated! Bath Built is committed to keeping each and every customer beyond happy with their custom built furniture. We use sophisticated wood working techniques plus high-grade materials and wood stains to ensure a high quality solid wood furniture product. During the first two weeks of receiving your furniture the finish will still be curing to its maximum hardness, so extra care should be taken during this time. Upon pick up/delivery and transfer of the outstanding balance, the sale will be considered final.
On behalf of the woodworking team here at Bath Built Furniture, we thank you and look forward to working with you! To learn more about our solid wood furniture products, please email us.
