Steve Heck of Mansfield, TX purchased the 96″ Canoe Kit with the Paulownia wood strips instead of the pine. Paulownia is a lot like Cedar, light, easy to work with, glues well, sand’s easily. Greg has moved right along on his project.
Built by Greg Moore of Murphy NC sent in a folluw up pic of his nicely made 72. He was so pleased with the results, he is getting ready to build the 96″. Thanks for excellent workmanship and photos.
Dave built a beautiful get away and needed to light up his bar. He did a great job using the Kayak Chandelier light kit. He used rope to hang it which might be the best way. 4 LED Flat panels lights that are dimmable and can switch to warm white, cool white or sun white. Great job Dave!
Awesome job Kyle! Very detailed job of building the 36″ canoe kit. He also made a nice you tube video of the canoe build and also one of a wood locomotive that he built from scratch. Amazing job is an understatement. Says he only has basic tools.
Sebastian sent in these pictures showing his 54″ canoe coming together. He sanded a bit to much and sanded through the edge of a wood strip. This happens, but is easily fixed by carefully cutting out the damaged strip and gluing in a new one. Sebastian will be sending in a revised photo soon. Thanks for the photos!
Sebastian is working on his canoe outside using a portable set up. This is an excellent way to do it. Enjoy the outdoors and don’t worry about any mess.
Like it’s big brothers, the 36 can be turned into a very functional and beautiful light for over your desk, snack bar or as reading light over your bed. Will come with the 20 watt LED lights. Will be a offered for around $75.
Have been pushing to get this out there and ready. It will be RC controlled. 40″ long finished. Built just like the canoes. Strip construction, forms and a strongback. Simple to build, strong, epoxy and cloth so it is waterproof. More pictures coming. Let me know if you’re interested in being the first to build it.
