A little bit about Vic Tesolin.  Vic is a veteran of the Canadian Army where he served for 14 yrs in the Royal Canadian Horse Artillery. After his honourable discharge, he was a student at Rosewood Studio where he studied furniture design and making under the guidance of some of North America’s top furniture makers. He ran his own studio furniture business designing and crafting furniture by commission while working at Rosewood as a part-time instructor and craftsman in residence. He realized that making the type of furniture he liked to make didn’t make him much money so he went in search for a real job…taking the helm at Canadian Woodworking & Home Improvement magazine as editor.

Vic now has what might be one of the coolest jobs in woodworking: he serves as Technical Advisor at Lee Valley Tools. He also builds what he wants, when he wants in his minimalist workshop.  Learn more about Vic and check out his blog, latest projects, and other cool stuff at the Minimalist Woodworker.
