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.

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.
