72″ Epoxy canoe chandelier kit.

I finally got all the parts readied for the new canoe chandelier kit. It will come with a rugged canoe hull made from hand laid epoxy and cloth. A CNC cut ready made deck and cross members which saves more time. And all of the Red Cedar toe rails, deck caps, seat and thwarts. 4 of the dimmable and switchable LED Flat panel lights. Easiest and fastest way to get great results. Prime the hull, sand smooth and then spray with a good quality paint from your local hardware store. The kit will have its own page. Email me if you’re interested in this great kit. Starting around $359.95

The new CNC cuttin forms!

I bought this 4 x 8′ Industrial CNC from a place in Cape Cod to replace the one that I built from scratch years ago. The home built CNC has worked surprisingly well for years but it was time to upgrade. This one needed some work but is now running perfectly. Very pleased with. Am now able to cut full sheets of the plywood which saves me a tremendous amount of time.

The CNC that I built years ago. Still works well, just slow and small.

The new Stitch & Glue Canoe Chandelier is finished!

I have designed a new stitch & glue canoe kit. There are many new and very interesting things about this one. First of all it all cut on the new CNC. There are 5 panels for each side assembled and stitched with copper wire over a set of Luan forms. It goes together easily and fast. About four or five hours and it will be taking shape. Then glue all the seams on the inside. This time i used my regular Titebond wood glue thickened with wood flour. This worked excellent! Strong, sands easy and the color is perfect. Once that dried overnight, I cleaned up the outside and pulled the copper stitches out, the epoxy and cloth the whole outside, though this could be skipped. I finished it out with heavier pine gunwales,seats and thwarts. The deck is cut on the router as well. The canoe was a lot of fun to build. Minimal sanding. I will be selling the completed lights as well as the kit. This is brand new so I have not started a new page for it. If you’re interested, drop me a line and I will set you up. Very pleased with how it came out. Used 1/8″ mahogany plywood. There will be a new page just for this kit. Comments can be left here.
