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:

My friend Matthew Kakekaspan took me out on the Severn River in his restored canoe.  One of the first thingst that I noticed as he loaded up the canoe wa the two paddles that he put in for safety.  They looked almost exactly like the docunented Cree Paddles from over 100 years ago,just bigger!  I asked Mat if I could borrow it for awhile to document it.  I'll post the specs later.
