I was so lucky today to get a chance to photograph the work of some of my woodworking friends. All are talented makers with their own individual interests and styles.
Michael Hosaluk made this wooden bowl, covered it with rice and applied gold leaf to the inside to make a unique “Rice Bowl”.

Weldon Gray is a local instrument maker who researches instruments from centuries ago and reproduces them with unbelievable skill and precision. He is also a musician and learns how to play all of the instruments he makes. This is a very large harp in the image of the “Fitzgerald Kildare Harp” which is located in a museum in Ireland. It took Weldon one year to complete the research and construction of this beauty. You can see more of Wedon’s work at his website: click HERE
A detail of the carving that adorns every part of this harp.
Leon Lacoursiere is a phenomenal woodworker and metal artist living in Delmas Saskatchewan. He normally makes gallery pieces, some of which you can see at another site HERE.
These delightful toy trucks were made for two of his grandchildren. You can see the care and precision that Leon uses even when making a toy truck.
