Stuart Harrison: Canadian Woodenware teams up with Peterborough’s Washboard Hank

Andy Sharpe purchased the Canadian Woodenware company in St. Thomas, and recently completed a restoration of a historical building in Springbrook, just south of Marmora, where the business is now operating.

Canadian Woodenware has been in business for over 114 years, making washboards and toboggans.

In addition to their regular line of washboards, Andy has just launched a collaboration with Washboard Hank Fisher. The Harmony is designed specifically for music, and the first shipment was recently delivered to Long and McQuade in Peterborough.
