Artist Tony Grove is a painter, woodworker, and boat restorer, who is currently looking to start his own school for woodworking. Video by Shaw TV-Nanaimo, April 2014.

BETWEEN WOOD AND WATER documents the restoration and history of Canada's oldest functioning sailboat, Dorothy, a lovely, lucky sailboat who has fired the hearts and imaginations of British Columbians for well over a century. Built in 1897 in Victoria, B.C., the 30-ft wooden sloop, with her beautiful shape and heartbreakingly pure lines, excited attention wherever she went. Tony will complete her restoration for the Maritime Museum of B.C. in 2016 for her relaunch in 2017, on her 120th anniversary. More at www.dorothysails.com
