    Hello

    Hello Everyone
    I've been lurking for a while since Art Mulder directed me here as a way to contact Stu. It didn't work out to get a tour of the Dungeon yet, but hopefully next time I'm in that neighbourhood.
    We live in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia, where we spend a good deal of our time and resources restoring an old farm property, where we have raised two sons, various pets, a few (now elderly) Quarter Horses and, more recently, a small flock of Shetland sheep. My wife is a handspinner, weaver and avid knitter, hence the sheep.
    I've been woodworking as long as I can remember, but really caught the bug from a great Grade 8 shop teacher. Our woodworking shop is a work in progress, growing and developing largely as required to support the restoration of the old house (1840) and buildings, but increasingly for furniture and other projects as well. I am fascinated by restoration carpentry and hope to learn and do a lot more of that in the coming years.
    This is a great site. I look forward to regular visits a lots more of your very inspiring "show and tell"
    All the best
    Peter

    HI Peter, nice to see you!

    Next time you are in town, I do hope you can come for the nickel tour of the Dungeon!

    Cheers!

    Hi Peter, welcome! My husband and I did quite a bit of restoration on our house in PA many years ago. It's hard work but well worth the effort. And I love horses, even elderly ones. Enjoy your visit!
