Tony Grove

After completing a four–year boatbuilding apprenticeship that started in 1980, Tony Grove honed his skills as a shipwright, specializing in wooden boat restoration/construction, boat interiors building and custom furniture design. This chain of experience led him to leave the city of Vancouver BC, and in 1999 start instructing at the Silva Bay Shipyard School on Gabriola Island BC. Tony taught traditional Boatbuilding plus a course (the first of its kind) that he designed on Ship Cabinetry/Joinery. Tony eventually became the school’s head instructor but decided to leave the school in 2005 to spend time with his family and is now working for himself as a custom woodworker, boatbuilder, artist, writer and teacher.
