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:

Time to get started on the Tremblay with the stern chopped off.

Step one, scarph on extensions to the gunnels to replace the sections that were cut off.

Always best to make the a little extra long, then trim them down to length.

I removed the old transom from the old ribs, put them in place...

Then steam bent a new rib to replace the one that was cut.
