cedar strip canoe project

well here is my first cedar strip canoe so far.
I finally got the last cedar strip on today.
I started on my canoe in june but due my 80+ hrs a week job during the summer it was slow going. there is still a lot of work to go
but I had to share this progress with a group of people who would apperciate it. there are a total of 82 rows on it.

thanks for looking

Did you make the jig your self or buy it? There is a guy in Maine who makes the jigs for sale. Would like to build one some day, have built three stitch and glue boats and one cold mold.

That is sweet!

I have a kayak sitting partially assembled for a few years now. Seems like something else always comes up but I have no valid excuse as you worked on your project with an 80 hour workweek! Hope you get a chance to take it out for a paddle soon!

@tg.. Between you & a fellow here in Maine I'm gaining the "nads" to try one for myself.
Got a shop full of cedar, can probably borrow the molds to copy or use, I think I have all the necessary tools...give or take a few.. I may just have to give it a go.
What are you using for ribs & or half ribs? Do you steam bend?.. Photos of setup??
Brass nails? Method of clenching? Resource for the brass or other unique hardware?
Are ya going for cained seats or solid?? Exterior finish??
Full of questions ain't I??
I'll be watching this one with interest.
..Jon..

I bought a book with all the plans and techniques in it.

its called (building a strip canoe) by-gil gilpatrick

it comes with full sized plans for 8 canoes,paddles and thwart.
I think I paid something like $25 for the book.
that should explain everything you are asking.
if any other qustions don't hold back to ask.
thanks,ryan

That is going to be one sharp canoe, when you put the finish on it is when it is going to really look great.
