Hello and welcome to my Web site.

I am Yves Laforest and I live in St-Colomban, north of Montreal.  My wife, Anne, and I, have run a kite business for 15 years and my specialty was (and still is) giant kites.  I still participate in several kite-flying activities in Quebec, the main one being St-Honoré dans l'Vent,  as well as in the United States with Scott Fisher of Gift of Wings.

Pieuvre à Grandes-Piles

In 2001, the activities changed and I turned to woodworking.   Today, I am therefore pleased to present to you a discipline called INTARSIA.  I will explain you what it is and you will be able to see pieces that I have made over the years as well as pieces that are currently available for sale.




Voici la pièce que je viens de terminer, une tête d'orignal.  Cette pièce mesure 42" X 37" (1064 X 940 mm).  Elle est faite de plusieurs essences de bois: Iroko, Shedua, Tiger Wood, Wenge, Merbeau, Cerisier.  Toutes les couleurs sont des couleurs naturelles de bois.

Elle vous intéresse?  Allez faire un tour du côté de la boutique.
