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:

Now that the Peterborough is stripped, I have started sanding the interior. I'm also getting going on the woodwork repairs, starting with the usual gunnel end and stem end repairs. Both ends.  I fit the pieces completely prior to gluing them in, its so much easier that doing it after.
There are also about 20 rib end repairs, then I get to repair the broken ribs.
