Winter Projects

Winter projects in the Canoe Shop!  With a few restorations to ready for spring and another new build it's a great place to spend some winter hours when one has the time!  Check out photos of the new build in our Photo Gallery: Marc Canoe Build.




Beautiful Fall

It's been a steady spring & fall finishing up a few restorations... and fitting in a bit of paddling!


 
Over the next few months a commitment will take us out of the canoe shop for up to a year, so will not be accepting any new boats at this time.

You are certainly welcome to contact us with your questions, or can be placed on a call back list for when we are back in the canoe shop. 

 


Thanks for your interest, happy paddling & keep in touch!

24hrs until the first day of spring... and Shop Elf!

A Shop Elf

Every shop needs one, a Shop Elf who assists in all aspects of the building process from milling wood, bending ribs, sanding, clinching tacks, painting & varnishing, playing boat bingo (our version of moving canoes in, out & around the shop), to weaving canoe seats and all manner of workshop activities.

This Shop Elf also enjoys other creative projects such as: Christmas Ornaments, Canvas Canoe Utensil Holders, Chair & Canoe Seat Caning, Snowshoe Weaving, Fairy Doors, Kitchen Aprons etc…  and is an artist outside of the workshop as well!

Check out a few past Shop Elf Projects in our Photo Gallery!

Winter in the canoe shop


The Autumn came & went and with it the arrival of several canoes in need of restoration over the winter months.  Here are a few of the projects we've been up to in Harmony.  Canoes continue to get ready for spring and their first paddle of the season!
