Wayne Doucette was born on April 10th, 1947 in Bell Neck, a small village outside of Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada. He attended a one-room schoolhouse for eight years. He graduated from high school and married his wife Genesta Doucette. Next, he continued his education by obtaining a degree in Physical Education at Dalhousie University. After experimenting with a few jobs, he returned to Yarmouth and founded "The Glassman", a glass repair and design business, which he still runs today.
Throughout the years, Wayne has been involved in various works. In the seventies, he created murals on motorcycles and vans. He also customized trucks and won top spots at car shows.
In the eighties, he founded "Wayne's Gun Shop", which specialized in building and customizing muzzleloaders and various other shooting tools. He sold his work all over Canada and the United States. During this time, he won various muzzleloading competitions, including first place at a Canadian national championship and fourth place in the World Black Powder Championship held in Bisley, England.
Also in the eighties, Wayne commenced building his dream house in his hometown, Bell Neck. Upon completion, it received attention from a Halifax television station, CBC, and won first place in the "Personal Best - Homes & Major Structures" national competition.
In the late eighties, he started creating sandblasted designs in windows, mirrors, and wood. Various works are located throughout Yarmouth County and the surrounding areas.
Today, Wayne is well known for his craftsmanship and spends his spare time building high quality cedar canoes and soon will tackle building a birch bark canoe. Anyone interested in his work is welcome to contact him.> Home
