Have you ever wondered what it’s like to build a cedar-strip canoe from scratch? This time-lapse video gives a unique look into the process as it follows a first-time canoe builder through the construction process from start to finish. Although he admits to making a “few mistakes,” the finished product is a beautiful 13-foot solo canoe. At the end the video says, “Not too bad for my first time.” We agree. Now we’d just like to see it on the water.
