This Week in the Shop

June 20, 2019

I got a call from a TV production company based in Winnipeg, Manitoba.  They are creating a TV series set in the 1980's with flashbacks to the 1950's.  They needed a wood-canvas canoe in 'like-new' condition (1950's vintage) as well as an identical canoe that looks 30 years older.  I just happened to have a fully restored "Huron" canoe and an unrestored "Huron" exactly the same model.  They bought the canoes and asked me to build a shipping crate for the restored canoe and simply bubble-wrap the unrestored canoe (pictured opposite).  The TV series is called "Tales from the Loop" and will air on Amazon TV in January 2020.  The canoes will be seen in the first episode.
