Welcome to Old Wolf’s Wood Shop

Welcome to Old Wolf’s Wood Shop.   Celebrating the beauty of wood, in all of its wonderful forms!!!

Located in Calgary, Alberta, I have been a woodworker for many years.  I come by my passion for woodworking  from my Dad.  When Dad still had his shop, we continually competed to see who could buy a new tool before the other could.  Between that strong influence and having been involved in the Home Improvement industry for over 30 years, I have a passion that could be bordered on the obsession, according to my wife.

I enjoy all aspects of Woodworking, from Toys to Furniture to Turning, and now CNC.  I am not a production woodworker, but enjoy various projects to broaden my skills (and the ability to buy more tools :))

I enjoy wood, I enjoy tools (Power and Hand), and I enjoy making Sawdust.

Project of the Month

A recently finished project. A fellow reached out, asking if I could restore a sculpture, that he had recently commissioned. The Orca was carved from Yellow Cedar by a carver on Vancouver Island. There was a mishap and the sculpture fell to the floor and ended up in a few pieces, Photo 1.

With the excellent assistance by my Son and Daughter-in-law, the sculpture was repaired and touched up where needed, Photo 2.

The client was very pleased when he picked up the now whole Orca.
