  1. Canoe Yoke Replacement

    Replacement Canoe Yoke A friend of mine damaged his canoe yoke and recruited me for a replacement. Nothing fancy but I figured I'd share. I copied the yoke, gave it a bit of thickness, cut it on the bandsaw, spokeshaved the sides flat, then rounded it over with a guided bit. Gave the mahogany...
  2. Cedar canoe sign

    Here is a sign I made earlier this summer. A private owned park in our area will be hanging it in the park in the near future. It is 4 ft long, 16 inches high and made of 1 1/2" red cedar. The letters are all cut with the router but the oars are applied. She gave me a miniature to copy from, it...
  3. Cedar strip canoe

    This was her maiden voyage to Long Lake, It took just under a year to build and I am addicted to cedar strip building, I have a kayak I am working on now.
  4. Canoe Mirror frame

    This is a canoe mirror frame I made using maple. The customer bought a home in Oregon that had the mirror on the wall and they liked it. The previous homeowner took it with them and luckily they were smart enough to snap a few pictures before it was gone. So I built this based off of photos...
  5. Wood Strip Canoe

    I had wanted to build a wood strip canoe for a long time. I read about them, thought about them, bought books on how to do them, bought patterns of some successful ones but I finally realized that I wouldn't have a place to really enjoy it here in dry West Texas. So I decided to make a scale...
  6. Canoe Paddles

    A couple of years back I went with a young friend to his high school woodworking shop to observe as the students made canoe paddles just after the school year ended. The atmosphere was informal so I asked to participate as there seemed to be left over lumber that students hadn't shown up to...
  7. Outrigger sailing canoe

    Here is a summer project from two years ago that I never posted. It is a skin on frame outrigger sailing canoe. The frame of the canoe is made with white oak ribs and larch for the gunwales, keelson, and chines. The seating platform and outriggers are douglas fir. The skin is nylon with varnish...
  8. cedar strip canoe

    This is one of my older projects that I thought people might enjoy looking at it. This is a 17' cedar strip canoe. I put it together without using staples. Took over 400 hours to make as I had to learn how to do each step as I went. Luckily there are several boat building forums with people...
  9. Wood Gloat Another Large Sycamore

    This is a tree that i drive by 10 times a day for the last 9 years. The tree is in the front yard of a small house near my work (Ford dealership, hense the nickname) I've watched this tree get trimmed twice a year forever and this year it got chainsawed back to the crotches, The tree was...
  10. time to paddle the canoe, not just yet

    Started this project on 1/21. She will be 19'. Didn't dream about making a 19 footer but after talking to a friend, I am. He mentioned that his father-in-law(Rex) made a few canoe and so the story begins. Met with Rex to pick his brain on the process any insights he had learned. By the end of...
  11. Vase Pyrograpy

    It started out as a fallen gum tree branch and then for a long time was a rather plain little vase. After a couple of years and a few small cracks appearing on the rim I was overcome with an urge to decorate and inspired by the henna hand and foot dye patterns that Indian and other ethnic...
  12. Cedar strip canoe (Walnut, Ash, Cedar)

    16' Cedar strip canoe. I have a bunch of pics of the build from the strong back assembly to the day it floated if anybody is interested in seeing them. This was my first "boat" I am more of a furniture maker and wood turner so this was new and fun.
  13. Repair Time

    For the filming of a movie, two (very old) borrowed authentic dugout canoes were somehow dropped and broken. Split almost stem to stern might be a good description of the damages. Cross bracings were placed across the inside before turning them over and pulling the splits back together with tie...
  14. Canoe Sailing Rig

    Though not really a woodworking project of the quality shown on this website. I figured I'd jump in and show you the first canoe sailing rig I made. The boy and I are on Forked Lake in the Adirondacks and hoping to ride some wind. We got her up to 6.8 mph (by GPS) on Forked Lk but the wind was...
  15. Canoe!

    Scott jokingly asked me for the canoe that went with the paddles I recently posted … well this is it. I didn't actually build it but I did do a tonne of work on it. I made the gunwales, seats, and the yoke (and the child) pictured. I was visiting an uncle last summer who had this beast out on...
  16. Das Canoe

    Here are pics a canoe that I built a couple of years ago. It was from a design purchased from CLCboats. It was built using Stitched Lap Strake construction. Stitched because of the twist ties used to temporarily hold it together. Lap because of the overlapping half lap rabbets. And strake...
  17. Canoe Paddle

    It's embarrassing to paddle a cedar canoe with plastic paddles, so I made one. My wife is still working on hers. I may have to finish it for her. This one is made from hard maple and mahogany. It's the last time I make a paddle from hard maple. My arms still hurt, and I made it 2 years ago!
  18. Cedar pool chairs

    Made these for Mom and Dad in Florida, so they had to be shipped from Michigan. And then easily reassembled. I scaled them to fit; Dad is tall so his is larger than Moms. These are foldable. Made with stainless steel bolts and screws. Hand routed. I used white oak in the high stress parts...
  19. I think that grandpa would be proud

    Well after 4 months & some 200+ hours, my canoe is finished. What a project & learning experience. I enjoyed the challenge & that first paddle across the lake made it all worth it. For those that have followed the process bear with me. The hull is cedar with walnut & aspen accents. The aspen...
  20. canoe shelf

    This is a canoe shelf I made from oak plywood and red oak lumber. The process starts with the stem at the front which sets the right angle and then you attach the slide pieces of ply and bend into the desired shape. The shelves are attached to hold the shape and then the back is added. I...
