Art Mulder

Art has been messing around in the shop since he was a kid, as his father was a carpenter with a garage full of tools.  But he has been pursuing woodworking as a hobby since 1995, and writing about it for Canadian Home Workshop magazine since 2004.

Most of his projects are inspired by different needs that arise at home.   Art loves the design process;  working through several plans to make sure a project fits the goals, as well as the location.

He favours both Mission and Shaker style furniture, and likes to work with contrasting woods, such as maple and cherry.
