In my last post, I discussed how the idea for a boat bookshelf became - build the whole boat - an actual craft, that can hold actual people, and actually floats. I had never built anything that large or complex before, so I did what many people do and turned to Google.
A short time later, I found bearmountainboats.com and their plans for the Freedom 17, a 17' cedar strip canoe. After ordering them, I turned to Amazon for some books.
I had read somewhere that Ted Moores, Canoecraft is a MUST have for cedar strip boat building, so I ordered that too. I also ordered Click photos below to find them on Amazon.
I also feel like I learn better if I can watch someone else do it first, so I ordered a couple of DVDs on this subject from the Newfound Woodworks website.
Next time, I'll discuss laying out the plans and cutting the station molds that form the canoe shape.
