Joe Albury began designing and selling his creations in the mid-70's, on a table under the corkwood trees that line the seafront of his hometown in Man-O-War Cay. This public display was the perfect place to bring attention to his solid and ribbed models of the 13 and 14-foot sailing dinghies that he and his father Lewis were making together.

In 1981, Joe built a small room off his woodshed to display his turned wooden items made from native woods such as Madeira and corkwood. As he gained popularity and the business grew, he added more rooms in 1983, and eventually expanded his business to display the work of other local artists and crafts persons ΜΆΜΆ ceramics, jewelry, and nautical items.

Joe is a recipient of the prestigious Cacique Award for his outstanding work in handicraft in The Bahamas. His "studio" specializes in handmade wooden boat models made by him, plus a variety of unique souvenir items.
