George was so welcoming and engaging. We marveled at his work and his dedication. Watching his creation come to life was a treat. Just wish his art was within our budget. :)

George is a master carver, having been an artist all his life, he has an amazing talent turning wood into magnificent pieces of art. Great stories and history about the shed that George loves to share. A worthwhile trip when in Tofino.
