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 jointed and glued together the rest of the staves for the viol top, and cut it down to the outline of the ribs.  That means that I can continue the shaping.

I also scraped down and sanded the inlay on the back in preparation to gluing it to the back of the ribs.

Wow Doug. The inlay looks FABULOUS. Such nice tight lines, sharp angles. She'll be a beaut.
