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:

A little more work got done on the L-00. The linings were shaped to the top dome of 25' radius, and the back dome of 15' radius.

The bracing for the top is glued in. I have been using fish glue more and more and really like it. I am following the traditional Gibson L-00 bracing pattern pretty closely, except that I am shaping the braces slightly differently.

Top bracing shaped, and the top is ready to be glued to the rim set.
