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:

One of my Northern Racing Canoes has come back for a little TLC prior to this season's racing.  It lost an encounter with a pick up truck backing into it.

Other than that, looking pretty good!  Makes me want one for myself...maybe flair the gunnels a little bit, widen the transom, decrease the center depth, add some oarlocks, set it up for sailing...
