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:

A little work on a Current Designs kayak.  The stem areas had bee worn away through abrasion every time the kayk takes ground.  So time to build the worn areas back up with some fiberglass and resin, then sand and fait them smooth.   A little shot of gloss white spray paint makes it look good and is far less expensive that building up and polishing gelcoat.  The rest of the hull is all scratched up anyway.
