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:

I opened up the hot pipe yesterday and this is what I found inside. It is some kind of heater element and is rated at 250 watts. It didn't work because the wires were disconnected from the terminals for some reason, either the broken or burnt.

Reconnected, the element heats up nice and hot. I think that I will put it back in and continue to use it, unless something better comes along.

Good enough for free!
