Introduction to Strip Canoe and Kayak Building – CLASS FULL

Instructor: Bruce Campbell

The most gorgeous of wooden boats, building your own strip canoe or kayak involves learning a few basic skills. This class will give you hands-on experience milling bead and cove strips. We will use the strips to assemble a simple wooden tool box, chisel holder, desk pencil organizer, or other object of your choice.

Students will be given safety instructions on the table saw and router that they will use to cut strips and router bead and cove edges. We will router Spruce and Redwood strips and fashion cedar ends.

We will use the strips to fashion a simple tool box, or other object of your choosing.

We will also discuss some of the variants in strip canoe building. Students are encouraged to order and bring to class: Building a Strip Canoe, Second Edition, Nov 1, 2010, by Gil Gilpatrick; available on Amazon for about $16.50.
