Birch Bark Canoe Building Cont.

jarrod

After another week of work, not all spent on the canoe, we got much work done. Set gunwales to the height I wanted, and lashed them in place with the split root. Decided on the Bow profile I liked and made the stems and lashed in place. My window for building is closing fast so went down to the Local cedar mill and bought some very nice straight grain clear cedar and milled into ribs, then steam bent and put in place. The ribs will sit for a few days and as we make the sheathing out of split cedar. then it all will come together maybe Wednesday.
