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:

My new dome drilling jig in operation laying out the lines for the holes.  Starting out with dividing the hemi-sphere into 16 sections along the longitudinal, then a whole bunch of latitudinal lines spaced 6mm apart.  This makes a grid oriented to the longitudinal, afterwards I will drill another hole in the center of each square.  Oie, that's a LOT of holes!
