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 new guitar is all done! I had it finished a few weeks ago and it has been settling in. I'm really liking it, my best ever. I had the guitar over to a local musician, a classical guitar musician who is a prominent guitar teacher and president of the Winnipeg Classical Guitar Society. He really liked it. My client will be the most important one to please, I am pretty confident that he'll like it.
