I'm a retired hobbiest and I love building these beautiful cedar strip canoes. I have two goals in mind when I build a canoe; it needs to be light enough for one person to mount on top of their vehicle and it needs to be beautiful. Otherwise, buy a Tupperware boat!

I recently finished this stunning 16' x 34" tandem (double) canoe. It's brand new. The boat weighs in at 46.5 lbs and has an estimated load capacity of 575 lbs. The plans are from Ashes Stillwater Boats and is the Angler Day stretched to 16'. It's stability in the water is exceptional. No need for trailering it, as it's light enough to put on the roof of any vehicle.

This is my 38th full size canoe. I used 3/16" x .75" beaded and coved clear red cedar strips with mahogany and white pine accent strips. The gunnels, seat, decks and yoke are mahogany and the stems and scuppers are ash. The Loon is mainly south African walnut (black) and white pine and the loonette (baby) is koa. The "water" is white oak. Accents are wood burned in. Of particular note: I do not staple the strips on to the stations, therefore no staple holes running up and down each one foot interval. The inside and outside received 6 oz fiberglass cloth. The inside received a second layer in the shape of a football and the outside received an additional 6 oz fiberglass cloth layer 4" wide down the center. Epoxy resin secures the cloth to the wood. Finally, the boat received three coats of high gloss spar varnish throughout. The matching paddles are included. Sorry, Mia my dog is not included at any price.

If you are interested in a cedar canoe of a different size I am taking commissioned orders. I build singles from 12' to 15' and the doubles (tandem) I build are 16' and 17'. I also build canoes for display and canoe chandeliers. I have built many with inlays; bald eagle, Canadian geese, three bears, bull elk, howling wolf, brown trout, mountain scene and open to other suggestions. Happy to send pictures and/or have you over.
