Hello fellow cabinet makers, my name is Luc Rousseau, Iwould like to take a this opportunity to welcome and thank you forvisiting my website cabinetmaking.com. Rideau Cabinets was formelylaunched by the late Danny Proulx cabinetmaker/teacher and a good friendof mine.

Danny Proulx - The Teacher

It all started a decade ago in the spring of 2003. I hadgone back to college to fine tune my skills of 20 years + in thewoodworking trades, and in my 3rd semester I was fortunate enough tomeet Danny Proulx, the teacher.

Little did I know at that time, it would change myprofessional life. I'm now a high school woodworking teacher, and I oweit all to Danny. As a tribute to him I get to pass to my student; hispatience, the knowledge he left behind and a no non-sense work habit.

Danny Proulx - The Writer and Businessman

Danny was a passionate woodworker and besides being acabinet maker, Danny was also a prolific writer. For over 15 years,Danny shared with us his skills through his books, magazine articlesand website advice. He combined the skills of his father as acabinetmaker with the ones of his mother as a pro photographer andwrote over a dozen books. His readers are unanimous in saying thatDanny's clear and concise style of writing enables them to enjoy makinghis woodworking project. Many readers often say, "It's likehaving him beside you in the shop". His step by step books,stress not only shop safety but a variety of cost savings tips.

Danny was a savvy businessman, and understood thereality of having a budget. His motto was "Keep it simple" an approachthat made him successful in everything he worked on. Simple project,with easy to find material, quality hardware, great close-up photo,graphics and cut-list both imperial and metric. Each project startswith the prelude of the overall process.
