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:

Furthering my Project G project: More holes! Even though these photos show that I am only about half way to the pole, I have now reached the pole and am now returning to the equator drilling the last hole in the center of each square. The pattern ended up too dense near the pole region and I will have to fill that in and re-do it so that it looks even. You can also see my screens sitting atop of the backs, as well as the penciled in hole pattern.
