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:

An Almansa guitar came in for some repair. The purfling had gotten knocked, came loose, and the top came unglued from the lining. Actually, let me qualify that. The Almansa does not have the tail block come up to the top and neither does the lining extend through the region, so the top has precious little to be glued to. Its a wonder that these things stay together at all.
