2018 information will be available closer to the show

The Cottage Workshop is a live building project that happens all three days of the show. Stop by with your questions about this season’s project or any other DIY project you are dreaming of! This year, Wayne is building something every cottage could use, a universal rack for canoes, kayaks and/or stand up paddle boards. All lumber will be supplied by Home Hardware and visitors will be able to enter for a chance to win the rack.

Wayne is a familiar face at the Cottage Life Shows as the man-with-toolbelt in the Cottage Workshop sponsored by Home Hardware. Wayne is also a regular contributor to Cottage Life magazine and has been featured on past episodes of the Cottage Life Television series. Some of his more famous projects include an outdoor shower, a treehouse, several variations on bunkies, and of course the famous Cottage Life Outhouse.

As the owner of Lennox Specialty Products, Wayne spends a lot of time at Ontario cottages fixing up decks, docks, and whatever other renovations come his way. Whether it’s fine woodworking or hard-core cottage renos, Wayne is happiest with a power drill in one hand and a drink in the other. So, stop by the Cottage Workshop and say hello to Wayne and the rest of the team.
