Ari is one of the most senior woodworkers at Live Edge Design and manages the woodworking shop. He's a great leader, creating cohesion in our shop, and can always be counted on for a smile and a laugh.
“I have spent 20+ years working as a cabinet maker on commercial projects for various hotels and restaurants throughout Western Canada. I enjoy working on old, rusty vehicles in my spare time, specifically Volkswagens. I have lived on the island for the last 10 years and enjoy its natural beauty and sense of community."
"Camping and fixing old cars"
"The Handplane. It’s an old fashioned tool that really connects you to the wood. You can really feel the grain with the Handplane. With the Powerplane you can run a slab through backwards and wreck the wood before you really connect with it."
"I collect the leftover wood scraps after work. Some of them are still pretty nice, and will be turned in to something cool...one of these days."
"I have two cats. One is nice, but the other is a grumpy little thing."
"My favorite tree is Fir. They’re great because they can survive almost anywhere."
"Dad, I'm bored what can I do?"
