Awesome canoe! Great work.

Saw your blog – really, only 8 months as a woodworker!!!
I am sure you learned a lot along the way.

I think I would have been one sticky mess if I had peeled off the bad “glass”.

Really nice canoe.

Nice job!! That’s one fine looking canoe. I enjoyed your blog also. I could feel your pain when you had trouble with the glass cloth, on my first canoe I had a similar issue. I think you handled it well. Beautiful paddles, everything looks great. The trial run in the pool surprised me, I didn’t think the canoe was big enough to hold three adults, guess I was wrong. Thanks for sharing.

That is really cool! I have been wanting to build one for years, but….........just need to do it! Anyone who has not looked at your blog needs to make it a priority, because it is the bomb! I have to guess that you are an engineer by day and excellent wood man by night? Thanks for sharing.

I see that this is listed as your first and last project. It is so fantastic I hope it will not be your last.
