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.

     I picked up these old cabinets last week and re-worked them into new cabinets - here's some before and after photos.

Bowling Pin Coffee Table

     My daughter was up over the weekend and dug these bowlin' pins out of my shop - she asked me if I could make a coffee table out of it. Here it is - am going to deliver it to her on the weekend.


     I've made these tuna before and thought I'd make a couple more.  I had a rake and used it for a tail; the top fin is a piece of antique moose antler; the bottom fins are oxen shoes; and the body is a cedar log that I've had drying for two years in my solar kiln.
     The tuna are hanging in my Museum building right now.

Hoss and his horse

    I just finished this piece today.  On the bottom I have written, "I wish HOSS would lose some weight my back is killing me."
     It is carved out of wood; the rim of Hoss' hat is part of a license plate; the legs are made from dowels; and the horses tail is made from a dinner fork.
