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.

20th Anniversary - Part 6

     I got my start working part time in the basement of my house around 1993.  At first I was mostly making gingerbread trims, screen doors and boring wood crafts.  The folk art quickly evolved and has continued to be the main focus of my business through the last 20+ years!  
     About five or six years ago I started making reproduction furniture from old doors, etc.  Eventually I opened "The Furniture Box" where I display and store the pieces.
     Special thanks to the many retailers and supporters here on the Island who have been good customers and promoters of my works over the past two decades.  
     Also, a big thank you to Gerry Marks of Pollikers in the Toronto-Pickering area - he was one of my early promoters who introduced central Canada to my work!   And more recently thanks to Larry Dugdale who had me show at the Iron Crow in Calgary in the fall of 2014.

Below are photos from gingerbreads to reproduction furniture.
     I've also built a couple of kitchens - here they are below - one was featured in East Coast Living magazine in 2013!!  Also my kitchen - thanks Dwayne!
