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:

Everything project is worked on in rotation and in its turn, so while I continue with other projects it is time to bring the next one in to get started.

This is "Loretta" another old "Huron" made canoe. Looking pretty rough.

Characteristic interior, not bad considering how rough the exterior is looking.

And the decks, especially, are looking rough.
