Full Biography

Ian MacDonald:

Ian MacDonald, a professional newspaper photographer, first discovered his love of woodworking in the 1980s when he built his first cedar strip canoe, followed by a turn-of-the-century sailing canoe.  When he eventually moved to Bronte Harbour in Oakville, after his photography career took him to Edmonton, Toronto and Ottawa, he set up a home-based studio where in his spare time he perfected the craft of fine woodworking.  When he left Sun Media in the 1990s, he took on woodworking full-time, building everything from solid wood furniture pieces, Adirondack chairs, garden furniture and privacy fences to sleigh beds, wine tables, stools, food presentation boards and his stunning collection of boxes, including live-edge and Shaker boxes.
