This past weekend was the Muskoka Arts & Craft Show in Bracebridge, Ontario. I was honoured to receive the award BEST IN SHOW! I’d like to thank every one involved.

This banner was given which hung in my booth for the entirety of the show.

The weather was great, the rain held off on Sunday and we were blessed with with Sun on Friday and Saturday.

I decided to build a stud frame floor from 10’ long 2x4’s. I have a piece of vinyl flooring that unrolls easily and looks just like a pretty nice hard wood floor.

This is how my booth looked on the Sunday, with rain on the horizon all day, I decided to put on the walls just in case of a sneak attack from mother nature. The tents are each 10 x 10, expand and pop up very easily.

A hit of the show was my most recent rocking chair which is actually a double rocking chair built from some of the best 2’’’ thick Curly Maple i’ve ever seen from Southern Ontario. Wenge highlights in the bent laminated rockers.
