Retired wood boatbuilder. My retirement woodworking interests are furniture and marquetry. I love to think outside the box and I love to do things I've never tried before. Almost every project I start involves design as you go flexibility and at least a couple of things that I hope I can accomplish but that I'm not sure I can. I try to use local hardwoods when I can rather than commercial "store bought" material. I like that it gives a feeling of heritage to the piece.
*2015 update* after four years of intensive marquetry I have started a new venture, The Canadian School of French Marquetry, offering week long courses in June and September each year.
