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:

A few more photos of the Kildonan as I prepare it for canvas. Aside from the gunnel break this canoe is in excellent condition. An interesting side note on this canoe, it was last canvassed by Daryl Perry. Daryl used to do canoe building and repair but has since gone on to be an internationally recognized builder of fine classical guitars.

This canoe has an interesting planking pattern. I include the photo for anyone who might be interested. For everyone else, just enjoy the nice photo.

Ready for canvas.
