This blog shows the folkart I make, my reproduction furniture and other projects. My studio/shop is in my backyard. It's a couple of miles off the main road in West Prince County, Prince Edward Island, Canada. When you come to visit make sure you see – the "Olde Times" Garden House Museum; Grandma's Attic; the Furniture Box; Grampa's Loft (antiques, old doors, etc. in my Dad’s old barn loft); and my World's Largest Egg Beater, certified by Guinness World Records.

Whale bone vertebrae

     I got these whale bone vertebrae from a fellow who was beach combing on his 4-wheeler about a month ago after a storm.  I heard he had them, so I approached him and bought them from him.
     They were still oily and very smelly - I used a pressure washer and clean them up.  Today, I have them on my shop south roof drying and expect they'll be there all summer.   In the fall, when they are dry enough, I'll work them into my art

Entertainment Centre

     I made this entertainment center for a costumer of mine.  She gave me a image she found online that she like and this is what we came up with.
Below is the image I started with - I modified it slightly.

Viking Helmet

    Here's my latest piece - a viking helmet!  A friend said he'd model it for me.  I used real horns and made the helmet from an old plastic fishing buoy.

Bulldozer Grill Sofa Table

     On a pick three weeks ago and as soon as I saw this bulldozer grill I thought it would make a great sofa table or side board.  Sold it the same day I made it.

Child's Kitchenette from old dresser

    I made this child's kitchenette play cabinet.  It was great to have the attic upstairs on this project - I used a variety of this and that to accessorise this piece.
