Build Your Own

Three Day workshop
For anyone who has ever dreamed of building their own cedar strip boat this three day hands-on course covers everything from wood selection, mold making and steam bending to final assembly and finishing. Practice your technique on a birdhouse project and learn the tricks of the trade.

New! Five Day workshop
Spread over five Saturdays this course involves building a 4 foot mini canoe that not only gives you
insight into the process of building a full size boat but also leaves you with a beautiful piece of art to display in your cottage or home.
