old canoe in need of repair
newly repaired canoe


Too often wooden canoes are in need of some tender loving care to bring them back to life, whether just cosmetic or severe structural work.

Sometimes wooden canoes are stored inadequately, or may have encountered one too many rocks. If you have such a canoe, I am happy to take a no-obligation look at it to assess what work needs to be done to put it to rights, whether I am the right person to do this, and how much I think that it will cost, all before any commitment is made.

Do you have a design that you wish to build, but lack the confidence or the skills or simply the work-space?

I will be happy to look at your design, assess whether I feel it can be made using cedar-strip construction, and build it for you if I think it will work. You will be involved in decision-making along the way, such that the finished product fits your specifications as closely as possible. Any changes to the plans that I deem necessary will be discussed fully with you.
