Hi everyone
It,s been a busy few months for me but i managed to get another birdhouse done.
This 6 ft birdhouse is made from 70 yr old barn wood.
It has 10 decks ,dormers and almost 70 apartments.
I filled 15 garbage bags just with the sawdust and shavings.

Spring is here

Category: Cranbrooks Lawn and Garden Ornaments | Posted: Wed Apr 18, 2007 12:00 pm

Hi everyone
I am so happy that the snow has finally left us.
I decided to start my new garden shed this week.
It will look similar to Ziggy's playhouse i did a while ago.
This shed will have 6 different roofs and 11 windows.




I have also had 5 newspaper articles done recently and i am featured in Canada's largest woodworking magazine called Canadian Home Workshop. May issue.
Here are a couple of my articles.

Back in the saddle

Category: Cranbrooks Lawn and Garden Ornaments | Posted: Sun Mar 11, 2007 10:45 pm

Hi everyone
Sorry i haven't been here in a while.
I have had some medical problems with my stomach for the past 6 months.
I am getting it taken care of now.

I also haven't been able to work in my shop due to the freezing cold weather. I am hoping to get back to work in the next month or so.
I hope to post some new birdhouses soon.
