  1. 12 Foot Tyvek Canoe •

    Feb 26, 2010 In 2005 I toyed with the idea of making skin-on-frame (SOF) boats. My objective was to make them inexpensive and light but durable and easy to maintain. I used wood and other materials that I was able to scrounge. The only thing that I had to buy was the brass screws, glue, spar...
  2. lone wolf wall clock

    After doing the Runnung deer wall clock, I was looking through my patterns and came up with one that I thought would make a nice wall clock. Hope you all like it when I'm done.

    Here is another canoe. Once again it is done with plans from Building A Strip Canoe, by Gil Gilpatrick. This is the Wabnaki model, and is 16' long. It's three feet wide in the center, 12" deep, and weighs around 65 pounds. If you would like more information and a whole bunch of pictures, I did a...
  4. Redbird Woodstrip Canoe

    I built this canoe over a 3 year period while we lived in the desert of Southwest Texas. It was inspiration to get out of the place we were living and to the Pacific Northwest where I could use the thing. At the time, Redwood was readily available at Home Depot in 1×6 stock. It was the best...
  5. Relief Carved Bent Shaft Canoe Paddle

    Yikes, it has been a looooong time since I last posted here. Where does the time fly? Anyhow, here it is, a new project just completed. A bit of background on why I decided to do this. I took a power carving class from my local wood working guild and was wondering what I could do to use this...
  6. Cedar Strip Canoe

    This is my third canoe. I used western red cedar strips 1/4×3/4 bent around forms on a strongback, edge glued and held together by statples until dry, then pulled the staples, sanded, sheathed it with polyester fiberglass, added the seats, gunnels and presto - a canoe is born. I built this in...

  8. cedar strip canoe from the Burly Man Club/Burly Canoes

    This is a 13 foot Wee Lassie 2 made from northern white cedar, redwood, aspen and mahogany. I really love the feature strip in this canoe. It is so stinking easy to make and the effect is well worth the 1.5 hours to make it.
  9. Canoe paddles and walking stick/staff

    The walking staff was mostly a matter of bending the top to a comfortable positon and putting a butt cap on the bottom . It was then finished with a spar varnish . The two paddles were made for canoeing with the Boy Scouts . They were laminated up from some scraps of interesting wood friends...
  10. Cedar strip canoe

    I started this late in 2014 and finished around the summer of 2015. Had I known about lumberjocks back then, I may have blogged the build to chronicle the progress and the obstacles I encountered and how I worked around them, and the some of the tricks I came up with to make it go a little...
  11. Boy Scout Neckerchief Slide

    This is a small basswood canoe paddle that I carved for my son to celebrate his first Boy Scout Summer Camp. The finish is Deft Sanding Sealer and multiple coats of Deft Clear Gloss Lacquer that was wet sanded between coats and finished with wax. I posted a small blog on the process of makinng...
  12. Cherry Paddle

    A retirement gift for a man I worked with for the past 10 years. I am forever grateful for his leadership, perspectives and guidance over those years. "We begin to enjoy ourselves, to rejoice in the fluid rhythm of the canoes, to feel the ecstasy of the wild, free, vigourous life that seems all...

It's made from 2 sheets of 1/4" marine grade plywood, cyprus framing, pine gunnels & keel, lots of epoxy & some mixed up left over laytex paint. I modified these plans extensively & had a load of...
  16. Canoe

    I made this canoe in my spare time over the space of two years. I also made the paddle, but not the hat, which I bought from the Pirates of the Caribbean in Disneyland in Paris. When I tried it out in the sea the seats were too high and the canoe wasn't very stable. After some adjustments, we...

  20. Woodworking Skill Share
    I've been making canoe paddles lately with some intricate wood patterns. I've done it using solid wood, but there are a few patterns I'd like to try on the blade that would be easier if I simply put a veneer over the blade (think marquetry ). The blade is mostly flat with a slight convex shape...
