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:

After working every day from May 29th through to June 15th, I decided that a little recreational work on Nicole's viola da gamba would not be a sin. Here you can see the inlay pattern for the back, the inlay pieces, a homemade line cutter, and a homemade router plane.

 Looking at all of the work that this inlay requires of me, I have only one conclusion: I am insane.
