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:

Progress! Now that all of the holes have been drilled I can move onto the reinforcement rings and back of the shell bracing. I just got the first coat of paint on and I'm liking it. I had to do some careful arrangement with the rings so that the front shell has something to register onto the back shell. The front has some nice translucency to it. 
 Now, a little more work to complete the finish and I can work on the dish which these sit on. 
 And...yes...the speakers do fit inside. I checked.
