Location: South Hazelton, British Columbia, Canada
Website:

I grew up on a farm in the north Okanogan valley of British Columbia Canada, learning and loving a practical way of life. I excelled in shop classes in high school and made up my mind to become an Industrial Arts teacher. I graduated from Andrews University in Michigan and soon afterwards found a job in a small town in northern British Columbia and married a girl I met at school from Iowa. Shortly there after I purchased a 40 acres with a nice creek flowing through it. We loved the unspoiled outdoors and the magnificent mountains. I set about developing this property like I was homesteading, built a sawmill from scrap parts, cutting lumber for building from spruce and cedar, birch for furniture and wood projects. I do everything from solid birch as the wood is free, plywood only if needed.
For many years I used the school shop for my projects but now that I am retired I built up a nice collection of tools including a metal lathe and milling machine. I make most anything. Have enjoyed seeing the home made tools and machines on this site as well as the craftsmanship of the many projects.

Just another one for my hero list!

I envy the 40 acres and shop—- Urban and comfortable are nice! BUT SO LIMITING!

Both physically and imaginative!

One of the most versatile men I ever knew had only an 8th grade diploma! He could talk intelligently on any subject except SPORTS! He could ifx ANYTHING! Yes, I mean anything! He had no time for TV or such! Too busy making/fixing etc. He had ND licenses as Plumber- Electrician—Contractors and Pilot!

Your description of your way reminded me of him.
