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:

Shaped and glued on the back braces for the L-00, then started shaping them. One small glitch in the otherwise very nice plans that I am using: the width is given for the back braces, but not the height! So I had to do some sleuthing, and decided to use 15mm.

What I did find during my research, is that I'd really like to try a ladder braced Gibson L-1 style guitar.

And got the back glued on.
