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:

My friend Dave was the photographer for a recent local Dragonboat race. He sent along this photo of a Dragonboat paddle that I made awhile back. During the 1990's I was contracted to build a Dragonboat and about 200 paddles. Following that work, from time to time, I was contracted by individuals to make Dragonboat paddles. This is one of them.
