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.

Garden Work Bench from Cast Iron Sink

      I put this old cast iron sink and drop leaf table together to make this "garden work bench".  You can connect a garden hose to the faucet for cold water to one side.

     I made these cows this week - making jersey cows for the first time.  I used a dinner fork for the tail and for the body I used a block of 6"×6" cedar post.
