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:

The gunnels and keel are made and the backsides have received a coat of varnish. They are now ready to be installed on the canoe. The canoe has the canvas trimmed down and that are of the filler has been sanded for painting. Its a lot easier to sand it before the gunnels are on!

I'll be poking away at this project as I continue to work on the guitar. This schedule allows the filler to be completely cured before painting.
