Location: Muskoka, ON Canada

I'm Northern Ontario resident that lost his grandfather last year, and I have taken his passion/love for woodworking all that he taught me and started a small business... 'Original Rudge' Handmade Canadian Cottage Products.

I inherited a bunch of tools including a old Craftsman lathe from my grandfather (which has sucked me in over the last few months...but I love it. Not sure if my wife does?) But, with the demand from family and friends for things, I have taken my hobby to the next level. Which includes everything from a canoe paddle key holder, to Maple Bowls, and Wine Racks....

Most of my products deal with 'Cottage Country' where I have set up as home with my wife, Jaime and our 3 year old daughter, Hannah for the past 8 years.

Life is good up here in the north, and glad to find out about and join Lumber Jocks to share some knowledge, but mostly learn from all of you guys...

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless
