About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Furniture Maker
Location Port Perry, Ontario, Canada
Introduction I am a studio furniture maker carrying on a tradition of my father and grandfather before me. Now that my son has shown interest in following these footsteps as well I have created this blog as a means of documenting some company history and pointing out some of the many lessons I have learned along the way. There are also some prescient and funny stories to share about the many furniture projects we have done over the years. In tandem with this I have also been involved in "green" and sustainability issues for well over 20 years. This has given me a perspective that is not always consistent with the conventional mainstream.
Interests Reading; writing; designing and making cool furniture.
Favorite Movies The Natural, The Green Chain, The Green Mile
Favorite Music My tastes range from "You Shook Me" and "Kashmir" by Led Zeppelin, to Vivaldi's "The Four Seasons"
Favorite Books "The Alchemist" and "Warrior of the Light" by Paulo Coelho; "The Prophet" by Khalil Gibran;
