16’ Cedar strip canoe. I have a bunch of pics of the build from the strong back assembly to the day it floated if anybody is interested in seeing them. This was my first “boat” I am more of a furniture maker and wood turner so this was new and fun.

Very nice, love the mixture of wood species. I, for one, would be interested in seeing more photos.

Only one picture and you just tease us with promises of more? Nice boat, one project I’ve been putting off for way to long.

Nice canoe, Kevin. You’ve accomplished what many here at Lumberjocks only dream of, myself included. Looks good, and floats too. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Kevin, thanks for adding the photos. Did you use plans to build this (from where?) and about how long did it take you? This is a project worthy for my ‘Bucket List’.

Nice work Kevin.
It looks kike she has lots of freeboard…. a real cargo canoe.
A day when another boat (any boat) hits the water is a good day.
Thanks for sharing.
