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:

I just returned from a three week work session in Fort Severn Ontario.  This is my second session there this fall, so I've only been home for three of the last nine weeks!  It already feels like a dream, real while you're in it, unreal after.

I've been posting updates of our activities on my Red River Canoe & Paddle Facebook page.  I have some catching up to do in posting that work here.  I'll get around to it!  But please be patient.  If you want to get ahead of me go over to the Facebook page.
