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.




Exhibition in the park in the center of the beautiful village of St-Côme, Saturday, August 13 and Sunday, August 14, 2022, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.  Take the opportunity to take a tour in nature by going to the Parc de la Chute-à-Bull,  2km from the village.  The trails are short but it's very beautiful.  And doggie can accompany us!
