"......[woodwork] was something done by thickos in a shed"

 James Dyson

Thank you for visiting my website. I'm a furniture-maker on Saltspring Island, on the West Coast of Canada, where I've had a small studio and workshop since 1983. 

These pages represent some of my work over the past 30+ years, as well as showing a collection of newer items reflecting a recent interest in traditional hand bookbinding tools and equipment.

I also make (and sell) beeswax polishes: I've been using these for many years, and they're easy and pleasant to apply as well as being good for the wood.

Lastly, there are links to an occasional Journal, as well as a separate Bass Journal, detailing the slow progress of making a double bass.
