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:

So the season is approaching Christmas and my daughter decides that she wants to give wooden bracelets to her friends. Of course its not just a couple of friends but over a dozen. And of course, she needs me to make them...

Simple, cut 14 circles out of plywood and sand them smooth, then varnish.

Spent a good amount of time finishing the current batch of paddles. This is how the look at the end of Friday.
