Show Notes:

Patrick Moore lives just outside of Ottawa, ON and is the first North American to complete the extensive Tour de France, with the a title Le Canadien 'L'Ami du Trait', the first North and South American Compagnon Passant Charpentier.  I met Patrick while he was learning heritage masonry in Perth, ON.  Patrick then moved on to carpentry and wanted to learn and apprentice as a journeyman in France.  Eventually Patrick graduated with a Master thesis that is on display in Montreal at the Musee des Maitres et Artisans du Quebec.  Patrick believes that by sharing this knowledge, he will empower others to do the same and the beautiful language of stereotomy or L’art du trait will not be lost.   Its such a great message and I am really impressed with Patrick and the journey he chose to learn these amazing skills.
