Upstairs storage, online exhibition, women of woodworking

Looking Ugly
Last, but not least, is the upper level of my shop. Although I don’t do much work up there, I’m able to store all sorts of tools and materials there that would otherwise take up valuable space in my main shop machining area.

Wood to Know:

Red alder

Red alder
Red alder (Western red alder) grows exclusively along the west coast of British Columbia, and is typically one of the first trees to colonize burnt-over or cutover areas. A rapidly growing tree, it has a short life span of around 60 years. The tree reaches heights of about 80 feet and diameters of up to 2 feet. Alder trees and shrubs belong to the same family as birch trees (Betulaceae).

Website renovation in progress

We’re remodelling — actually, reconstructing — the Canadian Woodworking website so things may be a bit messy in places. Your patience and understanding are appreciated. The new website will be faster and easier to search than the old site when all the construction mess is cleaned up. Thanks for being a reader. — Michael Fox, Publisher
