Strip canoe

This canoe is 16 ft. in length. It is not built from a kit. I bought redwood and machined the strips 1/4th x 3/4s inches, cut cove & bead. Fiber glass and epoxy inside and out. The seats are hand woven cane. The project took three months to complete.
Some time ago I bought a four pc. Ryobi set at Home Depot, and have added some pieces and extra batteries since. I really like being able to use the same battery on different tools. I gave it to my grand daughter in Florida, They say they can't get anywhere because people keep stopping them to make pictures.

  • All I can think to say is "WOW". That pretty much says it all.
