Meet Our Fine Team

Jacob Friesen

I grew up in southern Alberta and started working in the construction industry at a very young age. I found that math had always been natural to me and it was a great advantage when solving math problems that arose on the job site. I quickly realized that I had a passion for fine woodworking. I built a computer desk for myself at the age of 16 and 15 years later my kids are still using that desk.

As I worked in the construction sector, I realized this was the career I wanted for myself and I completed my Alberta Journeyman Carpenter certificate in 2013 and in 2017 I started this company.   My passion is to use my skills and creativity to build items that are functional and will enhance people’s lives.

My number one priority is my wife and five children – they mean the world to me. I enjoy spending time with friends and family, going camping in the mountains and travelling.  I like to stay active by playing hockey, volleyball, softball and soccer.

As a partner in Fine Craft Creations, my promise to you is that every item our company makes will be done with care, a commitment to quality and something we will be proud of. 

Nancy Friesen

I am someone who enjoys working with people, from taking orders to filling in forms or brainstorming on new ideas.  I’m one of the people at Fine Craft Creations working in the background while juggling being a Mom of five awesome kiddos.

I have always had an interest in the quality of home decor when decorating our home. I’m pretty picky so I like to be part of the quality control on the items we produced. I like things that not only look good but are also functional. 

I love that we operate a family-run business as it allows me to have a flexible schedule while raising our family. The bonus is that I get the high-quality décor that I want for our home!

When I am not busy working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and kiddos, friends and family, camping and traveling.

My promise to you is that I expect every item we produce to be of the highest-quality material and made with care and passion for home and office décor.   

Abe Knelsen

I grew up in southern Alberta and am a proud shareholder of Fine Craft Creations. As a child, I always enjoyed crafts and building things out of wood and I developed a passion for fine woodworking.

I started my first part-time job in the wood industry when I was 13. I knew this was what I wanted to do for my career but working and going to school was hard. Education was important to me so I faithfully did my studies while working and I was rewarded by graduating.

I’ve always dreamed of owning part of a business and having employees come to a job that they love, enjoy, and are treated with fairness and respect. At Fine Craft Creations, I operate the Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machine that turns our creativity and designs into beautiful and functional décor. 

Besides work, there’s nothing more I love than spending time with my beautiful wife. I also enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling, playing sports, camping, hiking, having bonfires, BBQs, and being outdoors in the summer.

As part of the Fine Craft Creations, my promise to you is we will work hard to create décor that you will be proud to display in your home or office.

Anna Knelsen

Before we started this journey at Fine Craft Creations, I always dreamed of being part of a home décor designing business that would make living spaces warmer and more welcoming. Well, my dream did come true and I just love seeing pieces of décor being put together for someone’s home because I know the difference it will make.

It is always exciting to see what our brainstorming of styles and ideas will look like at the end design phase. I’m proud to also be able to provide our customers with the options to customize our décor or to build something specifically for them from scratch. Our team of craftsman and designers work on the concept of “if you can dream it, we can most likely build it”.

Before Fine Craft Creations was formed, I was always inspired with videos and shows about homes being updated with décor. Although I don’t work in the shop everyday with stuff to do at home, I leave happy every time knowing that nothing leaves our manufacturing plant that is not produced of the highest-quality materials and professionally hand crafted.

Besides work I really enjoy cooking, camping, fishing and gardening. Just about anything that has to do with the outdoors.

As part of the family-run Fine Craft Creations, my promise to you is that every item our company produces will be something we would proudly display in our own homes.
