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:

While the filler on the Bob's Special is curing, I return my attentions to the old Peterborough high end Champlain.

It is rare that the seats on an old canoe are in this good of condition, all I need to do is to sand and varnish them.

Which is a good thing because I need to make new outside gunnels.

Because this is all that is left of the old ones.
