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.
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.
Novembre 26 and 27, 2022
The Rawdon Christmas market is special. It's a beautiful weekend every November where artisans have been meeting for 20 years. It shares the values and traditions of artisans's work. I invite you to come and have a look.
When: November 26 and 27, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Where: Champagneur College, 3713 Queen Street, Rawdon, QC J0K 1S0
Market website: Rawdon Market | Facebook
I have just left the workshop where I have just finished a Clydesdale mare and her foal for a special order. It was an interesting project that brought a whole new challenge; the client wanted the harness parts to be in stainless steel rather than painted. It was not always easy!
I have a lot of nice pieces that are available; have a look at the Boutique page.
