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:

I took down my old 29 gallon shop aquarium and put up this long 40 in is place.  No more Giant Vallesneria in this tank!  With leaves that grow to 6' long and over 1" wide, its just too big and aggresive for these smaller, shorter, tanks.  I'm liking how this one is looking so far, just some Cryptocoryne and Sagitarria Sublata, and one Amazon Sword in it so far.  I'm hoping to keep either German blue Rams or some Apistogramma in there, and some Cardinal Tetras.

Yes, the water really is tea coloured like that.  Its the tannins from the wood.  Good for fish!
