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:

The guitar case is finally finished!  Its amazing at just how much work fitting out the interior is.  Not cheap, either.  Just the foam and fabric cost about $80!

By the way, after experimenting with various adhesives, including spray contact cement, I determined that hot melt glue worked best, but it takes a lot of glue sticks!

I need to figure out an simpler way to do this as I'm actually considering making more cases...

BTW, the guitar is a Martin 0000-18.
