Location: Cowichan Bay, B.C., Canada

A former Transportation Workaholic who, along with my wife Lucie, made the decision to downsize our life and finally get into something I have wanted to do all my life - namely work with wood.

As a result, we sold up, moved to Vancouver Island, downsized our home but built a shop and are now doing what we both enjoy, i.e. working at what brings us fulfillment (and a little money on the size) and a lot less stress in our lives.

Welcome. You have found the right place for woodworking. A great group of people willing to help. Looking forward to see your projects and comments. Work safe in the shop and don’t forget to use pushsticks.

Thanks everyone and especially “Shipwright” for putting me on to this site. What I’ve seen so far makes me realize how far I still have to go.

Sorry Mark, as the saying goes “there ain’t no more room at the inn!” which you would believe if you saw newer pics of the shop!
