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:

As this is a canoe shop, here is where I am at with the current canoe restoration projects.  The Huron is complete, needing only its stem bands to be installed.  The Chestnut Bob's Special has been varnished, canvassed, filled, gunnels back on, trim varnished, and two base coats of primer applied.  All it needs is finish colour coats, final varnish on trim, and seats and thwart put back in.
