I was born in Shawinigan, Quebec, Canada, and became familiar with tools at an early age by "playing" with my grandfather's old wooden tools. He was a very good carpenter and cabinetmaker. However it was only after my graduation as an engineer and specialist in environment at the Universities of McGill (B.Eng.) and Montreal (M.Sc.A.) that I became really interested in antique tools. I then started making a collection. I have also accumulated books on the subject of tools, of cabinet making and carpentry.
After more than 35 years of engineering practice, my hobby became my new way of "practice". After all those years I have donated a large part of my tool collection to museums. But I still have many fine examples of ancient or antique tools, and I am pleased to show you a few pieces.

Time passing by, I have designed a few galleries. Evidently, I could not do it alone. My grandson Simon Carpentier helped me. I thank him very much. We are trying to shorten the generation gap. Please have a look at each of these galleries.
