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:

Lots of tiles are required, I need 16" of them set end to end like this.

Then they are glued to a slip of veneer to hold them all together. Then they are ripped to 2mm strips. Carefully! A fine tooth 1/8" blade works well for this. Anything coarse will rip it apart.

And the finished result. When being glued up in the rosette a matching line of veneer will go on the opposite face of the one already glued on.
