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.

I have had my HFDC for several years now, originally stock, then with the Wynn 35A canister, and finally with a couple of home made cyclone type mods. My last mod finally got it built in and piped. Well, we sold that place and bought a smaller one...
When Belle Starr was driven onto the beach in a fierce storm last month many would have written her off and in the current used boat market they should have been right. Repairs as extensive as these could easily run far beyond the sale value of th...
