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 Week - Part 2

     Here's photos taken at my open house on May 11 and 12, 1996 - I had a studio where I displayed my art and a separate workshop.
     It's neat to look at the art I was creating way back then!
     Below are photos taken the following year, 1997, when I built a larger workshop that connected the old workshop and studio - I also built a "solar kiln" at the far left.
    Below is one of my first carving of a Bear made from a cedar log for my brother Carter.  Here I am about 22 years ago - I just finished carving it - that's when my workshop was in my basement..  And here it is today - over the years it's been inside and outside and recently grew a layer of moss!
