Dave kept in contact with me throughout the whole process. Great service! The piece is just as beautiful as it was in the picture. I recommend Dave highly! I am very pleased :)

Hay Bay Woodworks

My one man shop is part of Shagbark Farm on Hay Bay in Greater Napanee. I grew my shop gradually over the years adding equipment as my wallet allowed.

With a 100 acre woodlot 50 kilometers north, and treed land on the farm, there is plenty of raw material for my sawmill. Both properties are registered as Managed Forests and work follows a management plan registered with the provincial government.

Lumber from the mill is stickered up to air dry and then stored in various buildings until needed for a project.

Over the years, I have made everything from dulcimers to neckties, but now focus on carved bowls, one of a kind tables and household treenware.

Depending on the season, I can be found working in my woods, in my shop or carving burls under a shade tree (or driving a Massey Harris with my grandchildren).

    After several careers, ranging from college professor to organic garlic farmer, I now spend most of my time as a woodworker and grandfather. Until they are old enough to join me in the shop, we spend quality time driving my Massey Harris tractors.
