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.

The exhibition that was to be held in Grandes-Piles as part of the Journées de la Culture will not take place. May be next year...
Saturday 9th, Sunday 10th and Monday October 11th, from 10:00 to 04:00 PM.
The exhibition will be held at the Val Saint-Côme tourist resort located at 501 rue Val Saint-Côme in Saint-Côme, J0K 2B0, as part of the autumn event. Come and say hello if you pass by.
Saturday 30 and Sunday October 31, from 09:00 to 06:00 PM.
The Week-end Couleurs et Saveurs, organised by Michel Dugas, will be held at the Rosemère multisport centre located at 354 Montée Lesage, in Rosemère, J7A 4S2. And I will not be alone; my friend Gilles Ferragne will also be there. Gilles is a wood turner who makes very beautiful pieces at the wood lathe. He even let himself be tempted by sculpture. It is to be seen.
Come to say hello!
