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:

Lest anyone feel that all is fun and games around here...

Here is the racing canoe getting its canvas skin on.

The interior with its ribs all repaired, planking replaced, and new paint. Check back on how it looked when I started.

And with the filler on. While the filler is drying I am working on my guitar commission.
