Each canoe is built-to-order and meticulously hand-crafted using traditional materials and methods. Ribs of northern white cedar are steam-bent over the form and attached to spruce or hardwood inwales using bronze ring nails. Planking of either northern white or western red cedar is then clinch-nailed with brass canoe tacks. The hull gets faired, sanded, and oiled to assure a smooth shape and seal the wood. Mildew resistant canvas is then stretched and tacked along the rails and stems. Three coats of oil-based filler are rubbed into the weave by hand and allowed to cure to a hard surface. All wood gets at least 3 coats of marine spar varnish and the filled canvas gets 2 coats of primer followed by 3 coats of marine enamel to create a durable and lasting finish. Cane seats, hardwood thwarts, and brass stembands complete the boat. These boats are built to order so you can select from various options and colors to make your canoe truly unique.

Lead time varies depending on current work load but please expect at least 3-6 months before your canoe is completed. There are various stages that involve curing or drying time between coats plus the filler takes 6 weeks to fully cure before primer and paint can be applied.

The price listed is for a base boat and local pick-up at my shop. Shipping can be arranged via a carrier that specializes in delivering small boats around the country or I can deliver within a reasonable range of Alabama. Shipping or delivery cost will be determined based on your location and desired method.

To commission your canoe please contact me through the "Request Custom Item" option found under Shop Info in the left-hand sidebar menu. We will discuss your desires, agree on a price, and a specific listing will be created for you to purchase in accordance with Etsy guidelines.
