Ad van Hees

As a young man, Ad was a furniture maker. During this time, he learned everything about working with wood. And at 84 years old, he is still active: running, cycling, gardening, nothing is too crazy. But one of his biggest hobbies is creating woodwork. He recreates beautiful old buildings based on drawings and photos from the past.

Making these models takes a lot of time, but this is no problem for Ad. He can be found daily in his shed in the backyard, busy working on a new model. Usually, these are buildings or objects that he wanted to make himself, but sometimes he makes commissioned pieces.

He has no intention of giving up his hobby just yet. So it doesn’t matter how old you are, if you love something, you can keep going forever.
