2017 Wooden Boat Festival has ended

Tony Grove

After completing a four-year boatbuilding apprenticeship in British Columbia that started in 1980, Tony honed his skills as a shipwright specializing in wooden boat restoration, construction and boat interior building and has worked for various companies and private clients. Educating is something Tony also enjoys which has led him to publishing articles, lecturing for various group events and consulting on boat interior design and construction. In 1999 this chain of experience led Tony to leave Vancouver BC and start instructing at the Silva Bay Shipyard School on Gabriola Island and in 2003 he became the schools head instructor while teaching traditional Boatbuilding and a course he designed on Ship Cabinetry/Joinery.
Tony left teaching full time in 2006 and is now back working for himself as a boatbuilder, custom woodworker, artist, writer and part time teacher.
