Because wooden boats are cool, they have great curves, and when finished are stunningly beautiful.
We build boats because there is a ton to be learned about woodworking in general; joinery, wood selection and even geometry when working with an object that has such few straight lines. Every joint has an angle different than 90 degrees … we learn patience carefully fitting one piece of wood to another forming the perfect joint. Our sense of accomplishment grows with each additional piece and will remain for a lifetime once the project is complete.
Our first projects will be strip planked canoes, from western red cedar. Join in on the fun!
