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:

A few photos of what I've been up to lately. 

As noted in the header, most of my update activity is happening on my Facebook Page

What I do like about using Facebook for updates is the ability to receive and exchange comments.  While this Blog does allow you to post comments, I usually don't get to see them making it difficult to respond.

I just completed two new canoes: an 18' NRC for the canvas canoe races in Cross Lake, and a 14' Red Fox going to Calgary. I've included a few construction photos, too.

I have begun to participate in a new marketing opportunity.  The Winnipeg Art Gallery has begun a craft exhibition called CRAFTED.  I don't go into many shows as I am usually too busy working.  The WAG show seems to be attracting a nice crowd and I do need to keep my name in the public view.

This SimplySUPBoards only at that price. It's a good beginner panel, but it is not as stable because some of the more expensive planks. This bounces a bit as well as rides fairly lower in the water, even if your rider is actually no place near the weight restrict. Still, it's not hard to use, quick to setup, and that i like the accessories that come with it.

Located on the shore of Lake Tahoe, there are fourteen downhill ski resorts and eleven cross-country ski centres. Residents of all skill levels are able to enjoy a wave reaching 34 feet every season in this town. Our cross-country routes and mountain runs provide you with the chance to enjoy the splendour of the blue lake. Lake Tahoe jet ski enthusiasts should start at Sunnyside Marina.

Interesting stuff guys. Now almost in all the countries of world prefer to buy products online to save time as well as the money. I also prefer digital portals for saving time instead of visiting the market. You need to plan your advertising costs by looking at the overall performance and key metrics of your marketing campaign. There's a great tool for that - Google Results Planner. Thanks for it
