Location: Edmonton, Alberta
I currently live in Edmonton, Alberta and moved here from Windsor, Ontario about 15 years ago. I have always been an artistic person but was never truly able to use my talents in any other medium until I discovered woodworking.
I am still fairly new at the whole woodworking scene so anything I build from scratch tends to be a bit rough around the edges although I am learning very fast. I mostly prefer to refurbish old furniture by redesigning it or giving it a new purpose from what it was originally designed to do. I was recently laid off from my Land Surveying job of 9 years and decided to take a year off from working full-time to sit down and reassess my future.
I recently received my computer tech certification as well as planning to start a side business building or recycling furniture, mostly finding a way to incorporate style with technology (digital jukeboxes, office furniture, arcade cabinets, etc). I'll take the projects as they come.

For the past 3 years, a good friend and myself have been building fold-able or collapsible children’s playhouses out of MDF board. These units can fold flat and be stored in a closet or underneath a bed. They are usually a successful sell bu...
A good friend of mine had bought a Columbia Gramaphone at an auction a few years back and has had it sitting in his storage garage ever since. I’m not sure as to how old the actual unit is, but I could guess the 1930’s to 1940’s ...
I have decided to write down a few of my ambitious project goals for this year. Hopefully, by this time next year, I’ll be able to look back at what I had listed and see if any of it actually happened. Build a Bench out of an old Water-be...
