Aaannnnd, the stem is bent! I leave it on the jig for around 24 hours to dry a bit and cool off. Carefully choosing the stock, using a backing band and keeping a constant 200+ degrees in the steambox ensures success when bending wood with dimensions this big. #canoebuilder #woodworking #woodencanoe #steambending #peterboroughcanoe #cedarstripcanoe #wideboardcanoe #ribandbattencanoe #basswoodcanoe #canoelife #canoe #tradition #craftsmanship #beauty #canoebuilding #messyshop #tablesawbench #woodworkingjigs #canoeshelf #history #dyingskill #lostart #thewaytheyusedtomakethem

It took me several boats to get a grasp on the whole fibreglass process and it has been ongoing. The light bulb didn’t really go off until I experienced a well made boat. The first two makers that made an impression on me were Skip Izon and Ted Moores. This is when I realized the value of the squeegee process. It seemed counter intuitive at first to wet out the cloth and then squeeze all the excess resin out but this is a critical stage in the quality of your fibreglass lay up. The cloth needs to be tight on the surface with no pooling resin or worst case the cloth floats off the surface. Hence the squeegee is your best friend. Here is a close up photo of the results I’m looking for .

Almost to temperature! Steaming a 1.5" piece of white oak for a stem for a canoe shelf. Never ceases to amaze me how pliable wood this solid gets after a bit of steam. 1 hour per inch of thickness at around 210 degrees F allows me to bend this stock into a 10" radius 90 degree bend.............. In other news I finally got a phone to replace the one I broke a few weeks back... so I can finally post again! Stay tuned to see more from this project! #canoe #canoeshelf #woodworking #steambending #woodencanoe #canoebuilding #canoebuilder #boardandbatten #wideboardcanoe #madeincanada #boatbuilding #canoelife #cedarstripcanoe #workshop

It took most of the week, well three days, but the hard work and the tedium has paid off with a lovely varnish job. Just in time, too, because I was getting bored of sanding and varnishing.#redrivercanoeandpaddle #crosslakeracingcanoe #canoebuilding #boatbuilding #canoevarnish #boatvarnishing #epifanesvarnish #woodcanvascanoe #woodcanoe #manitobacanoe

Dry clamping. Testing my setup to see if everything fits before glue-up tomorrow. Interesting lack of clamps typical for this job .

Second coat of varnish done. Now I get to sand and varnish it again. Oh joy.#redrivercanoeandpaddle #crosslakeracingcanoe #canoebuilding #woodcanvascanoe #woodcanoe #woodworking #boatbuilding #manitobacanoe

Cross section of my one piece gunwales on 1/4 inch ply. The thin section is the inwall and the thicker outwall. For the most part this is a bit of an experiment. I am pulling out all the unnecessary wood. I’m not recommending anyone follow me down this path just yet. That is my disclaimer. Catastrophic failure is usually due to extreme trauma and happens where hardware pierces gunwales. So don’t have hardware or extreme trauma .

At the beginning of this build I had a clear vision of some of the details that I wanted but really no idea of how to get there. I wanted to try proud canoe decks instead of inlay. I wanted to try one piece gunwales that wrap around the bow and stern. Every time I came up with an good idea it seems that I would abandon it eight hours later. They say that you should spend 55 minutes identifying the problem and 5 minutes to solve it. That has been about my ratio. I going to run with the mock up on this short video or a version of it at least. I wanted and like the idea of a hardwood nose to go with the Sitka. The key to a perfect fit is the slight taper on the nose .

The first coat of varnish revealing the lovely chocolate tones of the cedar in this canoe. Tomorrow I get to hand sand all of that expanse. Oh, lucky me.#redrivercanoeandpaddle #crosslakeracingcanoe #woodcanvascanoe #woodcanoe #canoebuilding #woodworking #boatbuilding #manitobacanoe
Had this idea for one piece gunwales for this project. This particular boat design is well suited for this idea. I think that it will work out well and in Sitka will save some weight .

On these big canoes it can feel like it takes forever to finish all of the planking, but I'm done now, and it's time to prep the inside for varnish.#redrivercanoeandpaddle #crosslakeracingcanoe #canoebuilding #woodcanvascanoe #woodcanoe #boatbuilding #woodworking #manitobacanoe
Found this pic from one of our canoe trips in 2003. Can anyone guess where it is?? #canoeadventures #canoetrip #canoetripping #canoeadventure #canoebuilding #canoeing
One of the exciting parts in canoe building; applying the glassfabric-epoxy laminate. It makes the hull strong and stiff.

We post occasionally about shooting video, but the other half of our online instruction is the plan sets. Liz has been translating sketches and notes into diagrams and documentation as we head into the final stretch before we release the canoe designs.
.
Rather than a traditional set of boat plans, the plan set accompanying the videos is more like a workbook, allowing you to design your own canoe within the balanced tension building system I developed. Use our base specs, or plug in your desired length, beam, rocker, choose ultralight, heavy-duty, etc.  and get the specs you need for a successful build. Build two that nest, add outriggers to catamaran two together, or build your own sail rig...it’s all in there.
.
I’ve only scratched the surface of what this system can expand out to build - looking forward to getting this done and launched and seeing where people take it...a few more weeks and we’ll be live.

Think this is the most tidy the #workshop has ever been. We are all packed up till February. But still open for bookings, #canoekits, #canoeplans or #canoebuilding advice or even a #paddle.
Our German Pointer, Leo, has never been a fan of canoeing. His new friend Otto, a Vizsla, makes an excellent canoe dog.

Our 16’ Cruiser form was built by Chestnut in the early 1920s as the company rebuilt after the factory burned down in 1921.  After Chestnut closed its doors in 1979, Hugh bought the form and moved it first from New Brunswick to Temagami, and then to its current home at our shop in Wakefield, Quebec.  The form is fully clad in tin, allowing for rib spacing to be the regular 2” apart, as in the 16’ Cruiser model, or, the same form is used with narrow rib spacing to create the 16’ Guide Special, a model called the ‘Boone’. Extra ribs make the Guide Special line of models exceptionally strong and durable on the trail.  The 16' Cruiser starts at 54lbs!

Paddling our Passamaquoddy always makes me happy. With its 19 ft it's my favorite solo canoe and excellent for Canadian style paddling. Build by us based on a centuries old design. Time tested and approved!

Me and my family have moved to the small, beautiful village of Forsvik, and so has Hegarts. From now on our canoes and paddles will be built in this old storage house (from 1890) right next to our home. The house itself is located at lake Bottensjön and is very close to both lake Viken and Göta kanal. Perfect for paddling!

There are a lot of compex curves in the stern that the cant ribs have to conform to. After shaping the tip to fit against the stem, they're boiled and fitted into place. The clamps keep them in place while they cool and while I get them tacked to the planking.#redrivercanoeandpaddle #crosslakeracingcanoe #canoebuilding #boatbuilding #woodcanvascanoe #woodcanoe #woodworking #manitobacanoe
Once the canoe is off of the mould there's lots of detail work to do. Some of that includes fitting the cant ribs at each end. Next step is to boil them and install them. #redrivercanoeandpaddle #crosslakeracingcanoe #canoebuilding #boatbuilding #woodcanvascanoe #woodcanoe #woodworking #boatbuilding #manitobacanoe
So you wanna build a #kayak? Digital plans for our compact and versatile 13 footer are still here. On us. Free. No charge. Gratis. Yabbadabbadoo.

The plans will provide you with what you need to know to cut the life-size patterns for a cedar strip boat. The pic here is for her longer cousin but the lines 13 footer share the same elegant sheer and swooping lines.
