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 Seliga is nearing completion.  While sanding the exterior of the hull I had to stop suddenly as I noticed this signature.  It was difficult to see against the weathered looking cedar, but once I saw it there was no way that I was going to sand it off.  This is one of the few canoes that I've worked on that have been signed by those you have worked on it before.
