Canoe Making

Client:

Me

Brief:

I found some cedar fence posts in my garage rafters, left there by the previous owner.

Instead of the doing the sensible thing and using them to repair my fence, I decided to make a canoe.

Role:

Canoeist? Boatmaker?

A quick walkaround video

Process

A short video I shot of the process. Includes described video.

Progress

The exterior is done. Last summer the canoe fell off of the stand and broke in half. I repaired it. Then in the winter a heavy object fell from the rafters and put a hole in the canoe.

At the moment, except for the hole, the exterior of the canoe is finished. I don't have easy access to my workshop at the moment, but I hope to revisit this soon.
