Retired wood boatbuilder. My retirement woodworking interests are furniture and marquetry. I love to think outside the box and I love to do things I've never tried before. Almost every project I start involves design as you go flexibility and at least a couple of things that I hope I can accomplish but that I'm not sure I can. I try to use local hardwoods when I can rather than commercial "store bought" material. I like that it gives a feeling of heritage to the piece.

*2015 update* after four years of intensive marquetry I have started a new venture, The Canadian School of French Marquetry, offering week long courses in June and September each year.

*2019 update* as of October classes are now offered in home study interactive video format. Same course, no travel.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

Hey Shipwright! Just checked out your projects. You do good work man! To be expected from a wooden boatbuilder. ;^)

Welcome to this amazing site!

I’d be interested to know where you built boats and what.
