Each canoe we make is custom built from scratch one at a time. Every step of the building process is done by us from start to finish using traditional materials and construction techniques. Whether your canoe will be used for general paddling, wilderness travel, family use, or hunring and fishing, it will be handcrafted with the finest materials to best fit your needs.
Canoe Models Include the Following
Hulls are built from northern white cedar ribs and planking, eastern spruce inner gunwales, hardwood stems, and cherry or mahogany for the trim; seats, thwarts, decks, and outer gunwales.
The cedar interior and hardwood trim are finished bright with a durable marine varnish. All canoes are covered in a seamless mid west duck canvas that is filled with a proprietary canvas filler and painted to your choice of color.
Each canoe comes with hand caned seats, hand made thwarts, and the bow and stern ends are protected with a brass bang plate. Only the highest quality marine grade paints, varnishes, hardware, and brass and bronze fasteners are used throughout.
We recommend reading our Construction Methods page where you will learn how we build our canoes, the quality of materials used, and the attention to detail we put into each and every canoe.
