Location: GTA, Ontario, CANADA.
Website:

I'm a Graduate Architect with a specialty in Structural Engineering.

A General Contractor for many years specialising in the design, construction, renovation and restoration of Period Style, Older Homes and Retail Store Interiors.

Now retired and pursing many other personal interests. Woodworking is one of those interests.

Basically a "Hobby Woodworker". Most of what I make is for personal use and gifts for others. I've made most of my personal furniture and trimmed out my home in a "Classic" Style.

I occasionally Consult for others who are interested in Remodelling their homes In a specific style. I will also "General Contract" the Project if necessary.

I prefer to do a great deal of my woodworking using Hand Tools if appropriate for the Project at hand. Also for the satisfaction I derive from doing it that way.

However my "Shop" is very well equipped to handle larger and/or more complex projects for say, retail store interiors or home interiors. I will also Consult and General Contract those types of projects.

I'm pleased to be a member of LumberJocks and always look forward to sharing whatever knowledge I may have with other Members and learning what I can from some of the Very Talented Woodworkers on this site.

Regards: Rick
