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The Project G globe is originally made of spun aluminum. I don't have access to a lathe substantial enough to spin a sheet of aluminum that would be about 3' in diameter required to produce the half dome of 18", so I will make mine of composite construction. First step is to make a pattern from which to make a mold. From the mold I will make my half globes.

There's a reason why most people just go to the store and buy this stuff...
