The MV U&I has been the focus for the last two Ships Cabinetry and Joinery courses and now boasts new hatches, doors, cabin sole, deck heads, etc. Judging by her enthusiasm and passion for her work at the NW School of Wooden Boat Building, you’d think Katie Whalen had been a hard core wooden boat devotee since her childhood. Katie was first introduced to the Boat School in the early 1990’s, fell in love with it, and immediately began volunteering. Click on green player button above to listen to the interview and find out other fun facts about Katie and the NW School of Wooden Boat Building. I would REALLY appreciate you sending me wooden boats pics, stories, or projects you are working on. Sean Koomen aboard the Hanson designed Forest Service Boat recently finished by the school.
I want to build a community of people from all over the world who want to connect, learn, share stories and photos, and have fun with wooden boats.

The key to deciding which class best suits your needs is to carefully read each course description, which incorporates much information about the course’s content and level of experience. A fair number of students are interested in taking a series of courses, with a goal of becoming more proficient or even working toward a career in boatbuilding. Many of our shop courses are designed for beginning, intermediate, or experienced woodworkers; a wise choice based on skill level can determine how much you may benefit from the course.
As such we have reached a point where all the major projects which could be assigned to students have been completed. We’ll also be glad to help you with any questions you may have after reading this catalog, and if need be we can put you in contact with our instructors. Rather than remove some of this work to make way for additional students projects we have been able to find a new and caring owner who intends to both keep the vessel in Silva Bay and follow on from where we left off.

Choosing the right course means that you will be satisfied, appropriately challenged, and among others whose goals and abilities are similar to yours.


You’ll also find a wide variety of courses in which a class or individuals will build canoes or kayaks. While this vessel was used in the Ships Cabinetry program a team of volunteers led by Jerry Regimbal looked after the basic maintenance, bottom and topsides paint, fitted thru hull echo sounder, rewired the mast and running lights, serviced the engine cooling system etc. For those lacking this experience, we highly recommend taking our INTRODUCTION TO WOODWORKING course or a basic carpentry class in your hometown before signing up for one of our boatbuilding classes.
For those of you looking for a great introduction to traditional wooden boat construction, we recommend: FUNDAMENTALS OF BOATBUILDING, INTRODUCTION TO BOATBUILDING, BUILDING THE OCEAN POINTER, BUILDING THE MCKENZIE RIVER DORY, BUILDING A MAINE PEAPOD, BUILDING A NORDIC PRAM, and BUILDING A DORY.
