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:

All the canoe manufactureres will make all sorts of claims about how their canoes will be best for wilderness tripping, etc.

The real truth is that storage is the single hardest thing a canoe has to survive.

Here is anotther example of wood canoe gunnels not surviving storage, the port sides are all rotted out and I have to replace them.
