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:

Douglas Ingram Musical Instruments.

There is something very rewarding about taking a few pieces of wood and crafting them into something extraordinary.  That is what lutherie is.

Most of my effort are in guitar making as that is the instrument that I play.  I am mostly interested in classical guitars, but there are a few, select, types of steel string guitar that I am interested in building as well.

I also build the Viola da Gamba (viol of the leg).  This started by a simple request fro my wife (who plays 'cello and loves Baroque music) that she would one day love to play the Viola da Gamba.  I am pretty sure that I am now the only luthier in the province who builds violas da gamba!  And I am still finishing my first!



Here I will present finished instruments.  Progress stories of construction will be provided on the Blog portion of this site.

Instruments will be available for sale.  Commission inquires are welcomed.

If you want to be a successful musician, then you must select your musical instruments only after comparing the quality at the different online shops carefully.
