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:

Some colour has come into the shop this week! The paint on the Boreal is all done, got her turned over and got the last two coats of varnish on the gunnels. On Monday I will bolt the thwarts back in and get the stm band prepared and installed. All that is left is to put the seat in and they are being caned while all the rest of the work is getting done.

If you squint you can see in the background (second photo) that the Cruiser has its outwales on, that they are sanded and have the first two coats of varnish on.
