Ryan Sparreboom is a 39 year old hobbyist woodworker and tool
collector living in Edmonton, Alberta Canada.
He enjoys building fine furniture and small wood crafts of
all types. He began woodworking about 14 years ago with some
simple projects for his home.
Since then, his woodworking skills
have improved and his work has been featured twice in Canadian
Woodworking Magazine. Ryan has expanded his woodworking to
include turning fine bowls, vases and other turned wood items.
His craft has expanded in recent years to collecting
woodworking tools, primarily hand planes, focusing on British
and Scottish made infill and wood planes.
He finds great joy in
the history of the tools and in honoring their heritage by
continuing to restore and use them in his own work.
