George A. Wilkinson
George Wilkinson lives in Burlington, Canada with his wife, Darlene and two children—Amanda & Thomas. He has always had a passion for history along with writing and when the opportunity arose to write the final chapter in his Uncle Lorne’s story, he, somewhat reluctantly, rose to the challenge. It turned into a 4-year immersion into his Uncle’s world. George had spent nearly 40 years in the lumber industry, starting with his family sawmill where he gained a true love for wood. He has now retired from the world of business and is focusing on woodworking full time with an emphasis on wood turning. He says he never wants to create the same piece twice allowing each piece to be unique unto itself. He has just started a website www.woodentreasuresbygeorge.com.
