  1. Wood strip kayak - post 7

    Between computer crashes and needing to get other things done, I haven't done too much on the kayak lately but preparing for the final finish and building the backrest, footrest and paddle. All very time consuming things to make and then cover with fiberglass for strength and protection and get...
  2. Rising from a pile of saw dust and wood chips ...

    Here is a woodstrip kayak project I did a few years back. It's built out of 1/4" x 3/4" red cedar, spanish cedar, pine and being in Oregon I had to work in some douglas fir woodstrips shaded over a set of forms. The recessed hatch areas were shaped from blocks of red cedar and the coaming rim...
  3. Kayak rack

    After having our two kayaks stacked on top of some tubs in the basement for a year, I decided I should build a rolling kayak rack. I figured it would let me get them up out of the way, plus it would let me roll them out to the car instead of toting them in and out of the garage. I also hoped to...
  4. Kayak Storage Rack

    Needed a space-saving way to store our 4 kayaks in the new house. After some playing with ideas on paper, came up with this simple, mobile and inexpensive solution. About $40 in materials (including casters) and an afternoon in the garage and it was done. Some screw eyes hold the cable locks I...
  5. 17' Cedar Kayak

    Hello all. Just discovered this website while searching for ideas on things to make. I'm a fairly novice woodworker, but have found I kind of have a knack for it. Thought I'd share a project I finished recently.. it's still not 100%, but only needs some varnish for UV protection. I have had...
  6. Sea-Going Kayak (17' Guillemot)

    Built from local Red Cedar with Alaskan Yellow Cedar (Cypress) highlights. The hull is essentially finished but I still have not finished the fiberglass, joining the hull and final fitting of the boat. I take a lot of flack over this as this has been an ongoing project for a number of years...

  9. Guillemot Double Kayak

    This is the second woodstrip kayak I have built, a Guillemot Double. It took about 150 hours and is built of Western Red Cedar. I also have a picture of the first paddle I built (more are under construction) that somebody requested to see closer on the first kayak I built. It is built of...
  10. Chesapeake Light Craft Tred Avon Kayak

    I built this two-man kayak from a plan by Chesapeake Light Craft in 1996. It is 29 1/2" wide and 20' 6" long. It originally weighed in at 69 pounds fully rigged. There are four laminated beams that define the radius of the deck. This stitch and glue kayak is constructed with 6 mm okuome...
  11. Cleat System for Bicycle and Kayak Hoists

    Originally, I used the "cleats" that came with the Rad Sportz Bicycle and Kayak hoists (which I believe are made in Germany), but they are really only cheap bent metal. Also, with only the one cleat and so much rope required to operate the system, it gets wrapped around the cleat and yet still...

    I launched my newest kayak today. It's a Chesapeake Light Craft Wood Duck 10 that I built from a kit. Check out this short video of my maiden voyage. Boat Details This kayak is 10' long, 30" wide, and mine weighs in at a light 33.8 pounds. It includes a bulkheaded rear compartment that is...
  13. Kayak Rack

    This three tear kayak rack was built following Korey Atterberry's free detailed plans (http://www.atterberry.net/funstuff/homemade-kayak-storage-rack/). Modifying the planes slightly I added a full ¾" sheet of plywood as a back panel inset in a rabbit. This panel greatly reduces any chance of...
  14. A Kayak for the wife - also a cedar strip boat

    Last September I finished a kayak that I built to use, even though I'd never been in one. (check my last project I posted) After numerous outings trying to do simple things like getting into it, my wife and I took a Kayaking class at the local college. It then started being fun and I had told...
  15. Guillemot Kayak

    Guillemot style woodstrip kayak. Took me over a year to fully finish it, but since I was in school, I did not have a lot of time to work on it. (And I still need to get pictures with the hatches finished) I also built a custom paddle to match. Woods are Western Red Cedar and Walnut
  16. Kayak Trailer

    Made this in June 2009 when I returned from a deployment to Iraq. We had decided we were going to go camping and kayaking on my 30-day block leave, so we needed a way to transport enough sit-on-top kayaks for all 6 of us in our family. I started with a 5'x8' utility trailer from Lowe's. After...
  17. Strip Built Kayak

    October 31st marked the end of a 184 hour journey for me. This started as an idea a while ago, and now here it is. The pattern is the Guillemot, designed by Nick Schade and lofted from offsets in his book "The Strip Built Sea Kayak", my own copy of which has gone dog-eared long ago now. If it...
  18. Wood Strip Kayak, post 6

    So now the inside and outside of the hull and deck are prepared and fiberglass cloth and resin applied. Now comes the task of actually putting the halves together. The form comes out of the boat, the shearline, in this case, cherry strips, are final fitted and secured together. I found that...
  19. Making Kayak from branches and tarp/plastic wrap/polymer skin

    Hi folks, I made the frame for this kayak from fir and pine tree branches. In this video I am showing different options for its skin as well as the water tests of my DIY kayak. I tried a regular tarp, plastic wrap and a polymer reinforced skin. The video has detailed instructions and plans...
  20. Kayak

    This is my kayak that I built. It is mostly cedar with some black walnut accents in the darkest areas. The design pattern was mine but the form is by Red Fish. Sorry I did not provide more information for everyone. I did not think it would get such a big reaction. I will try to dig out some...
