At present, I make small boxes with figurative wood and small pieces of furniture. However, in the past year, I have built a cedar strip cosine wherry, row boat. "Acadian Roots - Wood Studio" is my workshop, (four feet from my house), surrounded by old growth hemlocks, on a large lake, and makes reference to my location in Nova Scotia (the Acadian Coast) and to my heritage.

I have spent much of my life in forested environments, (I also teach "wilderness/remote skills") and working with wood is simply another means by which to explore those places.
Much thanks to Lumbejocks for the technical support and encouragement.
