About Me

Hi, my name is Brian Shugarue and I was born in Newfoundland, Canada. I made my first wooden plane as a first year cabinetmaker apprentice in Calgary, Alberta, Canada in 2003. My wife's career as a scientist has taken us to Melbourne, Australia where I currently work full time as a cabinetmaker. I have always had small home woodworking shops where I could pursue my passion for plane making and fine woodworking. Since moving to Australia, I have been making high end, infill planes. I have created this blog because of interest from friends and fellow woodworkers, who encouraged me to share my work. More information regarding the inspiration for the designs, materials and processes involved in my work will be covered in detail in my blog.
