DIY Montreal about

Hi! I’m Marie. I’m a DIY enthusiast and a self-taught woodworker. Well actually, I’m more of a DIY addict and an amateur woodworker if we’re being honest. For as long as I can remember I’ve had a deep curiosity for understanding how stuff is made and figuring out how I can make it myself.

The funny thing is that I remember my brother buying me a giant toolbox one Christmas, and I wondered to myself What on earth was he thinking? But I guess he knew even before I did that one day I would have a shop full of tools.

While I wish writing about DIY projects and making how-to YouTube videos was my full time job, I also have a full time career as a market researcher in the pharmaceutical industry. I’m also passionate about cycling and hockey, but these days woodworking takes up most of my time.

I live in Montreal, Canada, where I work on my projects out of my small garage shop. While I’ve been DIYing for a long time, I decided to launch diymontreal.com in August 2016 in order to share my projects with other DIY enthusiasts like me. Then, just recently in 2017, I started a YouTube channel.

If you’re interested, here are all the platforms where you can find me:
