Dan Gallagher, Woodcarver, Port Perry, Ontario



In this short film, Dan Gallagher talks about his work as a woodcarver. Using traditional hand tools and methods, his versatile skills in woodworking and carving encompass everything from furniture making to boat building.

His woodcarving courses have proved popular with people from the Port Perry area and have motivated many to take up the craft as a hobby, and his stunningly beautiful hand crafted Adirondack guideboats remain true to their highly refined design which goes back to the late 19th century.
