Wayne’s love of trees goes back to his early tree-climbing childhood. Even now, he still finds peace twenty feet off the ground wedged between tree limbs. It was a natural succession for Wayne to go from tree-climber to tree-house builder and his love of wilderness paddling also led him to boat-building. He moved into furniture building as a necessary economic skill to fill his house and he enjoys finding his materials as much as using them. Wayne has been part of our Canadian Hand Tool Event® staff since 2012.
