72” CANOE KIT with pine finish parts


The 72″  Red Cedar Deluxe, a scale model of the famous E.M. White Guide wood strip canoe kit is really a big model! Pictures taken of it in the water are hard to tell if it is a model or the full size canoe!  The 72″ is one of the E.M. White Guide canoe series, second to 96″.

All of the E.M. Guide series has gone through many changes and vast improvements over the years. Mainly the CNC cut forms, the use of the 4″ sliding bar clamps to hold the strips in place while the glue dries, along with stem laminates and copper stem guards, real cane seat webbing, and more. The choice of pine or red cedar ribbing is as realistic as it gets. The ribbing material is very easy and fun to work with. The epoxy and cloth kits are 1 to 1 ratio, making it almost fool proof to work with. This canoe can later be made into a beautiful Canoe Chandelier with the addition of the light kit later or purchase the complete Canoe and Chandelier Light combo kit here. Red Cedar toe rails, seats and other finish parts are an option.
