The outlines of the hull cross sections are drawn on sheets of plywood, particle board or MDF. Use the table saw with feather boards clamped to the guide and table to keep the strip thickness uniform.
The strips used for the stems need to be steamed and clamped onto the stem forms then allowed to dry before gluing them together.
Once the hull is completely stripped it is time to trim the strips flush with the bow and stern stems.
Fiberglass cloth is laid over the hull so that it extends just past the stems, then smoothed with a soft bristle brush. Fiberglass cloth is laid inside the hull and held in place with clothes pins, then smoothed with a soft bristle brush. Gunnels are long strips of wood which are attached inside and outside to the top edge of the hull to give it rigidity when combined with the thwart. Really nice job,to buy a canoe like that one would dent the bank account for sure,but worth it. Despite the growing popularity of stand up paddle boarding in the Puget Sound area, I have yet to see a lot of homemade wooden boards. You can choose to fiberglass the inside of the board but I chose not to because of the difficulty as well as the added weight. Determine what the boat will be used for, a canoe for the cottage, a canoe for camping and tripping, or a work of art just to look at hanging in the garage.
The forms are attached to the station blocks on the strong back with drywall screws, taking care to line up the centerline of the forms with the centerline of the strong back.
Once the glue for the inner stems has firmly set up, they can be attached to the stem mold with a screw through the last hull form into the end of the stem and a screw through the other end of the stem into the stem from. The goal is to learn another language.  You will achieve this goal best when you are working at it in ways that support and reflect your personality and preferred learning style.
It is wise to research and explore the many varied methods out there for learning another language, but in the end you have to make the best choice for you.

However, you can’t just buy the ability to speak a language (must as I would like to). So while building a canoe or kayak why not be resourceful and use whatever methods are available?
I like the metaphor of language learning as a practice of slowly, determinedly crafting something with different types of instruction or assistance.
It seems that a lot of people have picked up the language simply from self-study and talking to the locals – or live in a town or city that is big enough to have at least conversation classes to attend, if not bigger Japanese language classes.


How do people motivate themselves to struggle through the years of frustratingly knowing that you are missing so much of what is being conveyed? As God draws us into a big change in our lives, perhaps also my language learning pursuit will shift and I will find both the determination and motivation to stick with some sort of study regimen.
Desperate because mastering the English language will open up new doors of opportunity for them, for their families.
I think we can start a grass roots movement of free information that a new system for language building can be built upon.

I didn't really expect to become a finalist, nor did I expect 146000 view in less the a month and a half. The wood strips alone are held together with glue and the hull eventually would swell and leak without the fiberglass or some sort of water proofing. Yes they do get scratched and banged up a bit, but since I built it I know how to repair it too. For instance, I decided to make my own strips from locally available Home Depot wood instead of ordering finished strips.
The board is heavy enough as it is and the extra weight would really make it difficult to carry. Some protection on the forms is needed to keep dripping glue from permanently sticking the hull to the forms. Start attaching strips to the forms at the part of the form closest to the strong back and work towards the center of the hull. Epoxy resin and hardener is then applied to the cloth in small batches, working from side to side, in about 2 to 3 foot long sections. It may not be a popular idea on all the language blogs that are out there, but those people aren’t you. Sometimes you need structure and guidance and language learning is certainly something I need that for. Especially since a finished canoe could carry you across bodies of water so you could journey to new places and meet new people.
And yet for the last three and a half years in Japan I have struggled to find a way to learn the language. And what you do know is insufficient and clunky and more often than not seems to simply fall flat. How do you adapt your brain to wrap around the foreign concepts and thinking behind how sentences are structured?
Structured, methodical classes with other, real people present, sure would make a difference! The problem I had was that I cut mu own straps with a table saw and they were not very consistent in thickness, even along the length of the same strip.


The fiberglass cloth on inside and outside of the wood makes a laminated core structure which is very stiff and strong. Sure looking at the finish product gives me some satisfaction, but not nearly as much satisfaction as using it. The basic kit consists only of four 8 x 1 ft plywood panels with the forms for the frames and center longitudinal cut out by a CNC router. One thing we noticed was that the board surface will become slightly uneven over time and I think it is because the strips absorb moisture on their untreated inner surface. The seat pad can be made with chair caning, strapping or webbing, left over cedar strips, or plywood. However, what they forget is that all resources can be used towards achieving one’s goal of fluency. As I say in my new guide, you can get input anywhere – a textbook, a class, a cartoon.
I have tried to watch TV for years, but even now I only understand maybe 5% of what is being said. How do you find the balance between listening and speaking if everything you listen to is too complex and trying to speak gives you headaches as you convert everything into some semblance of coherency?
There is also great potential for showing off a lot of fancy woodwork and artwork on both sides of the board. There are no leaks and we took great care not to get any moisture inside while paddling, so I think the moisture comes from condensation. I have to say if I wanted a canoe I would go out and buy one, accepting that my skills and patience when it comes to making things. If I had had the opportunity to join a Japanese language class I would have – but living out in the middle of nowhere, there is nothing like that available. Stumbling over words to try and make myself understood by native speakers hasn’t improved my understanding of the garble they say to me. Independence from the system is possible, but  a revolution in language education needs to take place. The instructions are emailed to you as a generic 70 page Wood Surfboard Kit Manual pdf that is used for all their kits. It turned out to be really beautiful, fragrant wood, varying in from pale tan to a darker chocolate color. It gives me headaches and gets frustrating so quickly when all I seem to do is try and cram vocab into my head, or puzzle over what people are trying to say to me.
Use them to break the chains of a broken system and set language learner's free to learn on their own.
