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:

And the old Peterborough is all finished. Four coats of new paint and varnish should protect it for many years to come. I also managed to put on a new 75th anniversary decal, the result of a very generous gift last summer. A little more on the history of this canoe. The present owner bought in in about 1955 along with another same model canoe. The canoes were new at the time and had just completed a trip from Yellowknife NWT to Baker Lake, Nunavut.
