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 few photos from Fort Severn.

Early morning fog as seen from just outside my hotel room door.



Full moon over the community, from in front of my hotel room door.


The old Anglican church cemetary.


Boat and canoe anchored by the river bank at high tide.


My first opportunity to go for a walk about town and I get to see a house fire!  The building was an old and abaondoned house, nobody was hurt, though some of the local kids were alarmed at the sight.


Late evening sunshine, as seen from my hotel room door.


I had my camer out during some rain earlier this day, when I picked it up to take a couple of shots of the day's work this is what I saw!  At first I was dismayed, then I realized the potential.  The results look really old school without photoshop.


The old Catholic church as seen from the river.  This church is abandoned now.
