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:

I am declaring the finish on the L-00 least for now. After slaving on it over the last few weeks and suffering the inequities of errant dust, I reminded myself that the purpose of this particular guitar was that I have something around that my hard picking friends can thrash on instead of despoiling my delicate nylon string gutiars.

So, with that personal edict in mind I glued on the bridge and bolted the neck on to start checking and refining its alignment. While it was all together I decided to get a couple of glamour shouts of it sitting in the canoe.
