Bookshelf built to resemble a canoe. Somewhat challenging, especially glueing the bow, but is a nice addition to the home. I ended up making two of them and now my brothers want one.

Another nice one. The red color looks great with the natural finish.

This would look good in any home, but especially in a cabin on the lake.

Looks like a great place to stow away some great pirate books. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the nice comments. You lumberjocks sure are self esteem builders!

Nice work! I’ve seen these in some stores for way too much and have considered trying to build my own. However, It’s a little intimidating being slightly new to the woodworking game. Did you have some plans or make your own? I’m interested in giving this a shot for my son’s room.

You done a Nice Job on this.
That Old Town Canoe hanging up there on the wall was built abou 8 miles up the highway from me.
It is one of the companys around here that seems to hang on when the econamy goes to crap, thay have been building canoes for something like 75 or 100 years, from wood strip and canvis to Royalux and fiberglass.
Keep up the great work.
