    Default Hi from Cranbrook Ontario

    Hi everyone i am john from Cranbrook Ontario . I am a 43 year old retired carpenter . I live on a 100 acre farm 2 hours west of Toronto. Since i was forced to retire from my job do to an injury i had to find something to do with my time so i decided to build birdhouses and lawn ornaments from reclaimed barn wood. All of the wood i use would of been burnt if i didn,t take it and i hate to see anything go to waste.
    Ninety percent of the wood that i use is aged from 80 - 150 years old.
    I always hope in inspire other people to think twice before throwing away old wood that can otherwise be used for something else.

    I also decided to stop driving 6 1/2 years ago and counting. It,s not easy when you live in the country but i manage.
    Here is a link to some of my work . cranbrook2's photos and albums on webshots

    Hi John,

    Those are some really cool birdhouses and a perfect example of reclaiming and reusing materials! It's sounds like you will be a great addition to the community.
