Barnwell Boatworks: BEYOND BOATS

Creative Side Projects with Limitless Possibilities


When there's a bit of free time, the people of Mackinac Island keep me busy with creative side projects. While the most exciting was an ice boat that cruised across the harbor at 20 mph, many projects focus on antique carriages and garden features such as gates, arbors, herb gardens and furniture. I've also designed and built a timber frame house on the North Bluff. To discuss ideas for future projects, please contact me.
