Steve Maule


With over 30 years of diverse experience and training as a finishing carpenter and millworker in the UK and Canada, exceptional workmanship and high quality products are cornerstone in my work.    

There's no job too small or too complex that I can't work through with the right mindset, attitude, tools and resources. Building trusting relationships with clients with a proven track record has been instrumental to my company growth.   


Thistle Millwork and Design is a fully insured company located in Vancouver, BC, and born from my passion for well made and uniquely designed cabinetry, furniture and home and commercial design features. 


I've been interested in working with wood and my hands since I was 14 years old, when I began my formal carpentry training  and completion of my City and Guild Joinery Construction Certification (Red Seal) in Scotland.  


What began as following in my father's footsteps, quickly turned into passion, and then blossomed into a career of crafting and creating custom items for customers across the UK and Canada. Get in touch to learn more about my process and to see what I can do for you.


I’m in the business of making people happy, and this takes good communication and the ability to understand your vision and help bring your vision to life. There’s nothing like seeing the look on a customer’s face when he or she receives a custom-made product that they love!


For me moments like these make all the hard work pay off. If you’ve recently had a great experience working with me or are happy with one of my products, please tell me about it. Below are some testimonials from clients I’ve worked with in the past.


So impressed with the style, build and quality of my new kitchen and bathroom cabinets. They are exactly what I hoped for! And Steve was a pleasure to work with- he took the time to get to know me to truly understand what I wanted and hoped for in my kitchen and bathroom. He was resourceful and had a 'can do' attitude which was incredibly helpful in overcoming any challenges that came our way.  What a difference it makes to work with a contractor and millworker who truly knows his trade and has the skills of an exceptional craftsman. Thank you Steve, I absolutely love my kitchen and bathroom!
