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 special treat about this trip to Banff was the walking tours of historic Banff. We chanced upon the event while visiting the Banff Springs Hotel for lunch (like we can afford to stay there!) On the cover of the tour brochure was a photo of a lutherie shop. I asked at every stop that we visited "Where is this place in this photo?". Finally we got an answer and had a lovely visit with the luthier who now makes his home in banff.
