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:

And a neck is being prepared for the guitar. The careful observer will notice that there is enough wood here for not one, but two guitar necks. Set up is one of the most time consuming aspects of work, so making two necks requires but little more time to make than one, and I'll have it ready for my next build.

The wood being used here is Spanish Cedar. Smells nice and spicy.
