Ewen constructed wood bookcases for us designed to precise specifications, made of solid maple. The work was completed on time and to perfection. Installation was done in one day, leaving the workspace clean.

The bookshelves were stained as we desired and with a clearcoat finish. Result is a real showcase and we are delighted with the result. Ewen functioned as a Master Carpenter and Cabinet Maker and it was a pleasure and positive experience working with him. We would be pleased to recommend him.

Fantastic couple of people to work with...Decisive, engaging and thoroughly involved, they made this project go very smoothly, from pre-production meeting right through installation. I sincerely hope that I have the opportunity to work with them again.
Thank you for the opportunity to work with you.

Built in cabinets, built in desk, radiator covers, shiplap feature wall

The work is absolutely beautiful, everything was exactly as we wanted it. All built ins are perfect and were custom made. A custom built in desk was made to match our walnut dining table and it looks fantastic. Rad covers look modern and clean. Only negative is the work was not completed in the original timeline we discussed as there were some issues with his carpentry team. If there was no delay I would recommend his work to anyone, and even with the delay it was well worth the final product.

G and his wife had a very nice home, which I was allowed to augment with the requested millwork. They were a fantastic couple to work with and were receptive to the some slight design augmentations I suggested. The slight, but unfortunate, delay in timeline was due to one of my cabinetmakers sustaining a serious injury in an accident.

Custom cabinets for a basement bar

I found Ewen through a google search and decided to contact him based on several very positive Google reviews. I really didn't have any idea what was possible in the space I was working with until Ewen showed up at my house. Not only did he help me plan out the design and rough in the space, but he also was able to work with another contractor in installing the cabinets. Overall, I found him extremely knowledgeable, not only in the crafting of the cabinets but also in the design aspects and the excellent advice he gave me in laying out the bar. I didn't get many quotes before I met Ewen, but I know that his work is in and around what would be considered standard for kitchen cabinetry. I'm sure you could find cheaper, but not with the quality and knowledge base that Ewen has.

Andrew presented me with a challenging project, one where spacial constraints required a good bit of thought and planning...I presented a concept to Andrew that he was very pleased with and the project was completed on-time and on-budget. Great guy to work with!

Attic Framing

Ewen was fantastic with our attic framing. It's a very old house and nothing is square or level. He did a great job. Was always on time and was great to deal with. Need to get my basement done in the future and will certainly hire him for the job.

Front entrance stairway

We recently had the pleasure of working with master carpenter, Ewen Cameron. We contacted Ewen to replace our front steps and landing.
He responded the same day was able to quickly provide us a clear and fair estimate… that in itself was a welcome change from other contractor experiences. We were most impressed with his structural concerns and how he integrated his work to complement the historic character of our house, along with our recently completed stone walkway.
He also worked cleanly and fast… and always with a sense of humour.
It was this refreshing work ethic and the excellent quality of the finished project that we really appreciated.
We highly recommend him “officially” on Homestars… and have unofficially recommended him to all of our neighbours who’ve complimented the work as they pass by our house.
Thank you again, Ewen!

Cathy & Adam contacted me with regards to a composite porch/stair project...

Their house was historic & beautiful, so our conversations centred on high-end, colour-specific composite materials. They chose a beautiful Dark Walnut-ish colour, which nicely complemented the darker brickwork (two-tone) while standing out beautifully against the lighter brickwork...

I also suggested raising the deck height, so that the step into the house didn't require Olympic-like hurdling skills anymore (south-facing covered entrance)!!! After I explained why prevailing weather patterns allowed for this to be done, they loved the idea.

With the plan in place, the installation went according to plan & schedule...They were wonderful people to work with, both of them being gregarious in nature, which is always a bonus. I hope to be able to enhance their fantastic home in the near future, should the opportunity arise.

Basement Built In Cabinets

I would highly recommend Ewen! His work is excellent and he is a delight to work with!

I contacted Ewen through HomeStars and was very impressed with how quickly he got back to me with a quote.

While I had some idea of what I was looking for to best use space that was created when we lowered our basement, I wanted to have an expert provide advice. Ewen not only provided his advice on the best way to utilize the somewhat awkward space, he installed it with the precision that you would expect from a master carpenter.

Ewen is very professional. He met his deadlines, delivered a superior quality custom cabinet, kept the space clean and free from debris and left me asking him to do more work as we complete our year-long renovation.

Christine was a wonderful client...Knowledgeable, yet willing to take my input and advice, incorporating it into her vision. We did THICK floating Walnut shelves, tall cabinet doors and a bar/sink unit that, in my humble opinion, enhanced an already well laid-out space. I thank Christine for her hospitality and engaging conversation, and I very much look forward to working with her again.

Backyard Deck

Ewen tore down our old deck and built us a new one just as we had requested. He added fine finishings that really made a difference. The project was completed right on schedule.

Beautiful new kitchen cabinets!

We're so happy with our new kitchen cabinets! Ewen was super easy to communicate with—he made sure to get all the information from us (including lots of little details we hadn't even thought of) and to be very clear about what we wanted, and the cabinets turned out just as we'd hoped. On top of the excellent craftsmanship, he was always very respectful of our space and thoughtful about scheduling and clean-up.

Superb client to work with...Shayla knew what she wanted, whilst being very responsive to a couple of suggestions I offered to enhance the project. Once we had settled on the scope of work, everything went into production and a timeline for installation was provided. Everything went according to plan, with the end result being the only acceptable outcome...A very happy client.... I thank you for your communication responsiveness, your hospitality and for being one of the most pleasant people I have had the chance to meet and work with.

Front Porch

Ewen was very efficient in removing the old porch and building the new one. The old one was worn out and was an accident waiting to happen. I wanted the steps to be of half height because I have arthritis and they would be easier to go up and down.
Ewen made it happen and also built a landing so the steps could turn instead of ending up in the yard. He measured the hand rail for my hand height so I would be comfortable using it. We tried it out several times before he built it.
I really love the new stairs and how easy they are to navigate. A beautiful piece of work! And done in three solid days!
All my visitors love it, especially the grandkids. Ewen was a real pleasure to work with.

porch replacement

Ewen's qoute was prompt, complete and competetive. He removed and replaced our second floor porch on our 100+ year old home in 5 days. His work was precise and exactly to our specifications and of much better quality than the original.

Welcome to the Website of Ewen Cameron Master Carpenter & Cabinetmaker: “EWEN MCC”
Having started my apprenticeship in July of 1980, I have been serving the GTA and Southern Ontario as a tradesman since 1985 and have been an Independent Businessman since 2001.
My goal in business has always been a simple one, to provide my clientele with professional quality fine carpentry and millwork, and with first-rate, personalized client services.
I provide my clients with a complete CONSULT-DESIGN-BUILD service.
Simply stated, I come and consult with you regarding the work you wish to have performed. Together, we then formulate a design. The canvas from which I can build can be as simple as a hand-drawn sketch outline, a picture from a design, or any other magazine, or a full set of blueprints. With many clients, they will simply tell me their vision and I will build it. Much of the work you will see in this web site is built from the client sketching a few lines on a wall and explaining how they envision the final piece. My experience allows me to obtain a sense of the client’s personal tastes and likes with regard to the type of architectural style they are seeking, be it modern, contemporary, traditional or anywhere in between.
At Ewen MCC, there are no middlemen to confuse the message. When you meet and speak with me, you are speaking with the person who shall be doing the work. No more missed small details, as there are no details too small, no more mis-measurements.
As you will see on the testimonials page, the respect of my clients home, or business, is of paramount importance to me.
I believe that my hard work and dedication has paid off, with the result being a lengthy list of very pleased clients.
