This Week in the Shop

Jun 23, 2017

The rotted stern deck of a 1948 Willits canoe is being rebuilt with new mahogany and white oak (pictured opposite).  Meanwhile, an 18' Old Town OTCA sailing canoe is getting a new canvas next week. Also, thirteen new cedar ribs have been bent over a 1905 Rushton Indian Girl.  All of these canoes will be documented for my second book -- This Fancy Old Canoe: How To Restore Your Fancy Antique Canoe.
