  8. cedar strip canoe

    12.5' cedar strip. I changed a few things from the plans to make it mine. I came up with this seat design and moved it back a few inches. This allows me to sit on the bottom like a solo kayak when i am fishing. Or I can sit in the seat if i want to use the canoe as a tandem.
  9. " Sipsey " My First Cedar Strip Canoe

    I had her off the trailer this weekend while it carried my red cedar canoe to the Paint Rock River so I thought I would get some pictures. She's built by Gil Gilpatricks Puddle Duck Plan. Gil states in his book Building A Strip Canoe that he's a "big" canoe man. I respect this but at my age...
  10. Woodstrip Canoe (Prospector)

    I built this woodstripper about 12 years ago. I just discovered Lumberjocks, so be patient with me. I need to catch up on some of my projects. There were 5 of us total, so we made 5 canoes and shared the costs of the strongback (structure) and other shared materials. This is a 16 foot...

  13. Cedar Canoe

    Here is a project that I started a long time ago but it got put on hold for many reasons and excuses. Anyways each step of the project was a learning experience. I purchased the precut forms from a canoe builder. The wood strips used were cut from 18' near clear cedar 2×4s. I cut them down...

Hull is Douglas Fir with African mahogany gunwales, seats and thwart decks with wenge...
  15. Cedar Strip Canoe Paddles

    Finally found the time to post these up. I made these earlier this summer. I used some leftover strips from the last canoe build so they are all white cedar with the exception of a "cross" of hardwood in the center of each paddle for added strength. The hardwood cross is made from White Birch I...

    Finished the outer hull fiber-glassing this weekend. Now time to remove it from the strongback & start on the inside. Some have asked about the bit used. It is a two in one bit in that it cuts the bead & the cove.
  18. 3/10 Canoe Trip

    I finally canoed the creek that borders my property. It was the trip from hell, too many logjams. The first picture is where I finished the trip, the second one was the beginning of the trip on my property. The canoe held up better than I did. But all in all it was a great 6 hours spent on...
