Our business was built from a love of wilderness canoe tripping in cedar canvas canoes.
Wooden canoes are special for many reasons. They are made from elements of the very forests that they travel through, evoking a legacy of tradition and adventure. They are built by hand using techniques passed down from one generation of builders to the next for over 100 years. A wooden canoe is not a piece of equipment that will become outdated and obsolete, but becomes a treasured family heirloom. These canoes are passed down from one generation to the next, who not only inherit a canoe but, the love and respect for the natural world through which they are intended to travel.
Our business is focused on the continuation of the heritage of the wooden canoe.
We specialize in the construction of custom cedar canoe decor using traditional cedar canoe building techniques. In addition to our beautiful handcrafted decor, we also build and restore cedar canoes, and trim modern synthetic canoes with wooden parts. Every piece that we create and canoe that we work on is finished to the highest standards and reflects our commitment to excellence.
We invite you to explore this site and visit our social media pages to see some examples of what we can do. Feel free to contact us anytime to discuss your ideas. We love creating unique pieces tailored to your individual needs and preferences.
Every piece that we create is a one of a kind due to the unique colouring and grain patterns found in the wood. Here are some of our recent pieces and some works in progress.
