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:

Last year I built a new Cross Lake Racing Canoe which competed in the 49th annual Douglas Monias Canvas Canoe race in Cross Lake Manitoba.  The canoe performed well and was well received, as a result I have five orders for new canoes this year!  This is the first of five just about to receive its first coat of varnish.  The completed canoe is the one from last year in action.

For details, please see the Canoe Models and Pricing page.

Shelton Roof covering had been very expert, honest as well as reliable. Their prices had been competitive and they didn't try to sell us something we did not require (just like a hardly any other contending prices for bids). Setting up a new roof is extremely expensive and possibly very messy. I would use Shelton Roofing once again as well as suggest all of them really highly visit the website...
