This blog shows the folkart I make, my reproduction furniture and other projects. My studio/shop is in my backyard. It's a couple of miles off the main road in West Prince County, Prince Edward Island, Canada. When you come to visit make sure you see – the "Olde Times" Garden House Museum; Grandma's Attic; the Furniture Box; Grampa's Loft (antiques, old doors, etc. in my Dad’s old barn loft); and my World's Largest Egg Beater, certified by Guinness World Records.

Pet Beds

     I made these pet beds for dogs or cats - our big cat Timothy tried out one of them. 
     The base comes from the bottom of old kitchen wood stoves.

Kitchen Islands made from old Church Panels

     I got these panels that came from an old New Brunswick church - I worked them in two kitchen islands.  
     I had some old drawers and worked them in.  The size of the counter top is 28" x 70" - they are 37" high.

Coffee Table from old oak wheel

     This is the latest piece of furniture I made - a coffee table.  
     It's 38" wide.  I picked up this old round grate and recessed in to the center of the table. The skirt of the table was parts of a wheel that was steamed and bent - I think its oak

A visit to "B.C. Antiques" last evening

     I took a drive to "B.C. Furniture& Antiques Ltd." last evening and bought a few things off the truck.  And I though I had wild loads. 
     B.C. Antiques are in New Annan ( between Summerside and Kensington on Rte. 2 ).  It's owned and operated by Lowel Cotton and his son Kent - they are great people to deal with!!!
Here's their antique store below...

Multi-drawer Island

     I picked up these neat set of drawers and worked them into this island - am happy to say this one is sold.

Screen Doors

     I still make screen doors - I've bean making them for 20 years.  Over the years I changed from making them from pine to using all cedar now.  
     The spindles are hand turned on a wooden lath.  The doors have removeable screen frame.   All the joints are glued with 3/4" wooden dowel.

Wooden Tank Corner Table & Nail Box Magazine Rack

     They don't get any older then this old wooden gas tank. I had a set of four brass legs up in attic  - this would be a corner table. 
      Yesterday i picked up this old nail box.  So i looked around here and found this base - an  old water tank stand.  This would make a great magazine rack or a place for yarn and netting needles.
