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:

On Remembrance Day, in the afternoon after attending local commemorative services, I struck down a 90 gallon aquarium in the house and reset it up as a Natural Planted Tank. I use most of the plants that were growing in the shop aquarium. They filled up the 90 nicely! The tanks is settling in nicely now, in the few weeks since this photo was taken the Amazon Sword plant on the left has been sending out new leaves that reach the surface of the the tank, and then some. As a reference, this tank is 22"deep. I've never had plants grow this well this easily!
