Building a Wood Strip Canoe

Happy Monday. This canoe was beautifully built in a make-shift boat shop presumably on a breezy back deck with some plastic enclosure and lots of wooden strips and power tools. What a beautiful canoe this focused builder created for himself in these 2 videos.

Have you built your own boat? Do you dream of moving the cars and bikes out of the shed or garage and turning the space into a boat shop? This winter the crew at TotalBoat Show will be building a kit kayak and we will be videoing the process. It will be a great way for the TotalBoat staff to use and understand the products we sell and a great opportunity for teamwork and some good fun at work. Everyone is looking forward to it. The big question is: how to fit everyone inside the kayak? Guess we need a sign out sheet!

Watch Part II of the strip canoe build here. And don’t ignore your dreams. Get yourself a kit or some plans and start building a cool boat! You don’t need a super shop! Just the will and some wood… and maybe a few other things. GO!
