About Us

David Johnstone Masonry & Design was formed in 1976 by David Johnstone and celebrates over 30 years of service to residents of British Columbia.  

A highly skilled Master stonemason with a unique aesthetic - evident in every project he undertakes, David creates ‘ functional art ‘ and has been showcased in various magazines and book publications.

He was fortunate to work with Ernst Heuft (one of the few Hafnermeisters in North America), that opportunity combined with years of training developed into the ‘standard of excellence’ David Johnstone Masonry & Design is known for today. 

David’s current focus is directed towards customized outdoor kitchens and high quality stone masonry projects and wood fired bake ovens.  The perfect combination of his two loves, food and masonry.  

You can meet up with David Johnstone Masonry & Design at local island events throughout the year.  In spring David teamed up with Martin Burnett of Vancouver Island University Culinary School, holding a Nanaimo workshop specifically for cooking with wood fired bake ovens.
