I have recently been lucky enough to get hold of an old one in need of extensive restoration and i am sure i will learn lots during the process (hopefully i won't be learning that i have bitten off more than i can chew). There is a forum that shares quite a few members with British Blades and is dedicated to canoes.
Chui Ill be here maybe- going on a 6 week canoe trip next summer,so I may beor not depending when your here Still on for a paddle? As a long standing member of "Song of the paddle" forum, yes your work would be of very great interest on that forum, would be great if you posted this on that site and more of course! In 1938 renowned Minnesota canoe-builder Joe Seliga built a form he called a square-stern canoe.
The Early Bird Rate is available for students who sign up more than 6 weeks before the course begins.

Once registered, students will receive a confirmation packet in the mail that may offer additional optional tool recommendations and suggested reading.

I hope to build one from scratch at some point and would definitely like to see more of your build if you continue to take pictures.
If you haven't already found it then you might enjoy (and i am certain everyone there would also love to see your build).. The form uses spruce strips, ribs on a 4" center, steel straps covered with butcher paper to prevent rust bleeding onto ribs, recessed backers for the inner gunwale, and a channel for the stem at the bow. Decisions regarding course cancellations (as related to minimum enrollment) are made three weeks before the class starts--so if you've got a course in mind, plan ahead and sign up at least three weeks in advance!

Although it's important that courses meet minimum enrollment three weeks before their scheduled start dates, we know that life doesn't always allow for prior planning. All the new dates are opened for enrollment on the same day and at the same time, so that everyone gets a fair crack at a spot in the courses they're interested in.
She began her canoe building career by repairing her own wood-canvas canoe in the early 1980s. The method used here involves bending the thin cedar ribs over ribbands connected to station molds and clenching the cedar planking to these ribs with hand-held clenching irons. We specialize in wood and canvas canoe construction and offer canoe building, canoe kits, restoration services and parts.
Whether you use your canoe for day trips, outings with your family, fishing or expeditions, we are committed to designing the most beautiful and functional canoes on the water. Of course it only came closer to realisation after BBs search engine came into play, thank you mushy. That way we'll know you're coming, courses are more likely to meet minimum enrollment numbers, and then they'll actually take place.
As long as there are still spots left in a course we're happy to accept your registration last minute. As that time rolls around we announce when the new dates will "go live" in our e-newsletter. The covering can easily be renewed and at the same time all other parts can be replaced or repaired, making these exquisite canoes truly an investment for a lifetime of good use. It’s an ideal method for those wanting to build one or a few wood-and-canvas canoes without having the extensive investment in time and money to build a solid form, and it greatly minimizes the storage space needed to store your form between uses. Throughout the week each student will learn a lot about canoe design along with numerous woodworking and canoe construction skills used at Alex’s shop—steam-bending ribs, planking, interior joinerwork, and canvasing. Rollin Thurlow is regarded as one of Maine's finest boating craftsmen and has developed numerous wooden canoe building techniques and designs that have been used around the world.

Join Joe's friend and fellow Ely canoe builder, Jeanne Bourquin, for thought-provoking days engaged in understanding and building on this historic form. Since then she has been hooked, and has been building and repairing canoes in her Ely shop. If desired, the station molds used in this unique method could then be employed to build a solid form for repeated production of the design. While two lucky individuals will win these boats in the raffle on Saturday afternoon, everyone will walk away with the know-how and gratification of building two beautiful boats.
Also, you can get a quick list of all of our materials and prices by viewing our price list or downloading our catalog (PDF file). The rich traditions and skills of wooden boat building will be encountered at every corner. The goals are simple: Immerse in the Seliga legacy and pull forth a nearly completed boat, ready for finish work. This course will take place over two sessions: one focused on bending ribs and planking the boat, the second on taking the boat off the form, canvassing and filling.
Students may register for one or both sessions and take an active role in creating a piece of Minnesota history.
