Lots of stuff goes on in this shop, located in Lorette, Manitoba.

Primarily it's the building and repair of classic wood & canvas canoes, and the making of premium canoe paddles. I also do custom boat building, composite fabrication, and special projects. A growing passion of mine is the making of classical guitars, I'll post about that, too.

I want to be able to share with my clients the progress of their commissioned work. Later I started thinking that there might be other people who are interested in what goes on inside a wooden canoe shop operated by an artist and a recovering teacher.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me by email, phone, or by post. My mailing address is:

My wife and I took our family on a 6 week trip to Europe last summer. We saved for quite a few years for this trip. No cottage, no motorcycle, no snowmobile, no motorboat, no big screen TV, old cars, old computers, etc...

I took a lot of photos that I'll share over time, but I'd like to start with a few from Venice. Venice is a feast for the eyes, and is like no other city that I've ever been to. While everyone else was busy photographing the buildings, etc. I took particular notice of the water.

Here are a few reflections of Venice.
