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:

What's better than one new Torres SE117 guitar?

That would be two!

And what's better than two new Torres SE117 guitars?

That would be three!

I finally got these guitars finished! Yeah, I can get them out of my shop where they have been coming together for over a year. The risk of damage increases with the duration of exposure to risk, and I was getting increasingly anxious about this.

The center guitar is for me, and I built it fairly traditional. The other two guitars are for my daughters. Hopefully they will learn to play, I'm looking forward to that.
