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.

Custom Tables big and small

    I thought I'd ask out there on the Internet if there was anyone looking to have a large table built.  I picked up this old take with the best set of legs I've ever seen. came from old heritage house in Tignish. The table was in very bad I salvaged the legs and can make a table as small as 3' or as large as 16'.  
     Last week I make this 6'table for a client.  The stained to table was for a client who have me the legs.

Pot Belly Night Stand

     I picked up this pot belt stove the other day and decided to put a wood top on it and a wood bottom under the ash pan. This would make a great night or lamp table/stand.

Jam Cupboard from very old shutters

     I got these old shutters years ago and decided to make a jam cupboard from them.  The other side of the shutter was louvered - they seem to have folded into a side panel in a house...possibly 1840's.
