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.

The Canadian Express

I call this piece "The Canadian Express."  It measures 26 inches wide, by 44 inches high.
The moose has 10 different pieces of wood glued together. the legs are made from two sets of double barrel shotguns barrels the ears, the bell, and the antlers are all made from a set of real moose antlers.  The RCMP Officer is made from a block of cedar and the legs of him are made from some old couch legs, the hat rim is from a bottom of a cake pan.
The bear is carrying two fish and it's made out of two pieces of cedar.
The Eagle, the squirrel, the crow, and the fox are all carved from a block of cedar.
The Beavers tail is made with a silver spoon.
