Ted Moores and Joan Barrett have been building boats for almost 45 years. At Bear Mountain Boats, Ted and Joan don’t just make canoes. They also help to popularize canoe building among hobbyists all over the world and sell kits to those who find it daunting to source their own material.

Ted and Joan have a lifetime of stories to share. Join us as we talk to Ted and Joan about:

  • How Ted became a maker and the “back to the land” movement
  • The evolution of Bear Mountain Boats
  • The history and legacy of wooden boats in Canada and worldwide
  • The writing of CanoeCraft and the filming of the DVD companion

Ty Moser of MonoLoco Workshop lives a life of exploration. Growing up on a small farm in rural Idaho, Ty learned about fixing what broke and doing what needed to be done. His early education in electronics led to an interest in all things computer. Now, when he’s not working in high-level IT, Ty is a Maker of whatever needs to be made – from fine furniture to cast pen blanks to a hand-made steel fence around his home. Listen in as we talk to Ty about:

  • Learning the value of hard work at a young age
  • The value of making things you can hold in your hands
  • His foray into blogging and how it led to content creation on YouTube
