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:

Progress on the guitar flight case. The making of this would have been much easier f I had know what I was going to do with the hardware BEFORE I started. Now that I have the hinges, latches, and handle, I determined where they would be attached and then had to install more substantial attachment material for the screws than the pink foam which is between the fiberglass layers. Once that was remedied I completed the inner portion and got that installed. Now I can paint the case, install the linings and the box that goes between the inner portions, and then get the hardware on.
