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:

This is the little Evergreen "Envy" is an 11'8" kayak. Just a nice size for poking about paddling.

Here is the completed gelcoat repair. Not all whites are the same, so the gelcoat white that i was using was not an exact match for the original white. Close enough for this purpose, seeing as I waited at least 6 weeks for Evergreen to send the original colour gelcoat...
