This is a older project that i’ve made… But I thought it was worth sharing.I build this kayak 5 years ago.
This project was for me the turning point where I realised that if I really put the time and effort into a wood project I can get amazing result. This Wood strip Kayak is make out of red cedar, and pine for the most part… In this project I also integrated reclamed red cedar that had been weathered for over 25 years… You can see that cedar on the top, It’s the darker wood.
I also learned a lot about fiberglass making this project. The woodwork was done within months, but the fiberglass took a lot more time. Prints and layout were from One ocean kayaks.
The instructional book and the prints were a breeze to follow..
To this day, my best reward is putting it in the water and having kayakers, and woodworkers approching me to talk about the build before I go on my paddle..
Here is a link to a video (picture slide) that I had made back then…
