About Steve Neil

I live on Vancouver Island on the west coast of Canada and make fine furniture for my family and friends and occasionally for clients. I have a degree in Engineering Physics from Queens University and worked in the telecommunications field for a long time doing hardware and software development. I was always interested in woodworking and so decided to retire early and go back to school to develop my woodworking skills, initially at Rosewood Studio in Ontario and then at Inside Passage School of Fine Cabinetmaking in British Columbia.
