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:

Yes, I know that I haven't posted much recently.  I've been pretty busy catching up from my time away working on Fort Severn.  Part of that included taking a week off to continue the renovations in my basement.  Back in 2007 I gutted out and started rebuilding the entire basement.  I am closing in on being done!  The recent project was to remove the bathroom shower and install a new one.  Needess to say, nothing simple is ever as simple as it looks.

Also, our 35 year old concrete septic tank had to be replaced, so a backhow dug a great big hole for the new tank and the old one was filled in with sand.  We had a new water softener put in, too.  After seeing all of that work done I can say that I'd rather just work to earn the money to pay them.
