Beautiful work, my friend. I am always amazed and hand built boats, and this is a fine example.

Great looking Canoe! I am intending to build one this fall, I actually started the process 3 years ago but keep getting derailed with other projects. I am also using Gilpatrick’s book, what a great resource! Seeing yours gives me inspiration to put the other projects aside and start working on the canoe. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the comments.the seats are hand caned following the instructions in Gilpatrick’s book. Paddles are still on the drawing board.

Really nice work, I really like the variegated colouring of the grain on the strips. I built one a few years ago as well but the strips I used were a lot more plain in look, I really like the way the grain shows up on yours.
Nice work on the seats too. I bought pre-made seats and yoke for mine, one day I’ll build my own, along with paddles….and a million other things. :-)
