Bob Christiano South Bend, Indiana, sent in these great pictures of a beautifully done 72″ canoe from our kit. Very nice. He also did a superb job years ago on a 42″ kayak. Thanks for the great pictures and work Bob.
The dark stained 96″ canoe with pine trim and parts, is my favorite.
Ken Price of Langley , WA. did an excellent job building the 72″ Canoe Chandelier from our kit. He added his own touches of Purple heart wood strips. Also he used some rope to hide the cable. Very nice Ken. Looks like he is really enjoying it!
John Curtin of Bloomfield Hills, MI did a jaw dropping build from our 40″ Lobster boat kit. He added many extra accessories to get it ready to actually catch some lobsters! Great work John, and thanks for the photos.
Christian Hedborg from Lidingö, Sweden , built one of our 72″ canoe kits. A mirror finish and many of his own added features. Very nice Christian, thanks for the photos!
I had an order for a 72″ Kayak light but the customer wanted no lights, no holes, and unstained or finished. I was very pleased with how nice it came out with the natural look. The customer said they were going to install pendant lighting. Will look forward to the finished pictures. This will be a new option for anyone purchasing the finished product.
Steve Odegaard did a very nice job building the 72″ EM White Guide from our Plans Book, using his own materials. Mounted to his wall, looks great!
Jack did another beautiful job on a 36″ canoe. He emailed me saying “Well, here it is. After finishing my 36” canoe I decided to convert it into a Haida Indian War Canoe. After doing a little research I came up with the features you see in the photos. Long and short spears, bow and arrows, and defensive shields. These shields are not fixed in place, just in a handy position to grab when needed. At the stern I also added a red pennant (danger) and a crescent moon (night raids with little moonlight), a blue zig zag symbol midships (they traveled over rough seas), and a triangle at the bow (the Haidas often joined forces with two other tribes, the Nootkas and the Tlingits). I finished the basic canoe at the end of August then added the Indian artifacts in September. It was fun working on, I like the way it looks. Well thank you for the nice work Jack. Very inspiring and a fun addition to the line of EM Guide canoes.
