I live just outside Meteghan across the road from the Meteghan River in a little town called Bangor. My ‘workshop’ is actually a corner of my kitchen and my front porch. I do all the major dressing of the wood at a dear friend’s shop in Digby, which is about 30 minutes North on Rt 101. Since I do mostly smaller projects, this setup actually works fine for me right now, as my main tools that I use are the scroll saw, drill press, router, Dremel, hand-held orbital sander, and miter saw.

Since I started here, we have done some revisions and I recently updated the pictures. I am now the proud owner of an Excalibur 21 inch scroll saw. I have had the 21” saw for about 2 years, but recently got the special 30th anniversary edition which has some additional upgrades to it. I added new pictures to reflect that saw, as it is the most used tool in our place and certainly the focal point. She’s quite a beauty!
