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:

An old Peterborough Prospector in for the usual spa treatment.  Some basic rib repairs to be undone, the old canvas is...well, shrinking, evidence that this canoe was red once upon a time, and some lichen along the bottom edge of the gunnel. Its been awhile since the last time any work has been done!

1452 is the model number for the Prospector model in the Peterborough catalog
