A little something from the archives; and I do mean the story starts a long, long time ago.
We have two bedroom suites. One we purchased from an estate sale in the neighbourhood of Oak Bay (Victoria, BC) in 1977. A lovely black walnut set consisting of three dressers (two with mirrors) and bed unit. Jan and I purchased these prior to our wedding; we were setting up house. Great fun!! It was from the 1920’s and with 50 years of living, the dressers tops needed serious re-finishing. We set about removing the varnish; tops only. Major ‘newbie’ mistake; hadn’t considered the tops were veneered; edges were poplar – just a bit of a colour difference. Too late and we left the variation. We were young, in love, having fun and didn’t care!
Once upon a time, in a land far away in wilds of British Columbia dwelt the fortunate. Forests thrived; trees reached to the sky and animals were abundant. It was a land rich, rich in natural resources; one of which was logging; not new news.
The sound of axe and handsaw, of trees falling, of whistles blowing were heard throughout the province, up and down the coast and on Vancouver Island. Throughout Desolation Sound, Sechelt Inlet and the Broughton Archipelago Jan and I have seen the imprint of times gone by.
