This was my first boat project, a model called “Windstream” from Carrying Place Canoe Works out of Ontario, Canada. A very fun project. Already has a couple of trips to the Boundary Waters under it’s belt!! Started in February and finished on July 12th, 2012.

Here is the link for my Facebook Photo Album of progress from start to finish:

Beautiful work Mike. Love the resulting pattern looking down into the canoe. Impressive finish. Many hours ahead enjoying yourself in this model. Thanks for posting this.

That looks great, I want to build one sometime in the future but I just don’t have time right now. Did you just get the plans from them or a full kit?

I second the request for the progress photos (and also all of the compliments). You might post them as a blog.

Beautiful canoe! You did a really super job. Hard to believe it is your first boat. Did you use the staple method of construction?

The first shot looks very inviting.
Very nice build Mike. It’s always good to see another boat on the water.
Enjoy your time with her.

Very nice canoe. After building a canoe, I wouldnʻt call you just a beginner woodworker. Youʻve graduated to a higher level. Any project from here on is going to be a lot easier than the canoe. How heavy did it finally end up. Is that around 16-18 feet long?
