Well, Christmas is almost here. Rollin has gone to visit the Grandkids and I will work today, but we will be shut down until Monday. Rollin has done some work on the old canoe he was working on. He added some ribs and has begun to replace some planks. I have completed the hull of the Shell Lake duck boat.(seen here) I will do some final clinching and then I'll wet it down to swell the hammer marks. Next I will move on to the Old Town Ideal.(on the left) I will be replacing some ribs. It needs very little planking. Both of these boats will be in the paint room next week for varnish and oil and the end of next week or early the next we will canvas them.
Welcome to the Blog of the Northwoods Canoe Web Cam. Located in Atkinson, Maine, we have been custom building new and restoring wooden boats and canoes for over 30 years. We specialize in wood and canvas canoe construction but we also work on a wide selection of wooden boats. In addition to the work on the boats and canoes we offer a wide range of specialized canoe material to those working on their own boat. Private classes are offered to those that want to come to the shop and build their own wooden canoe.
The web cam in the shop is very recent and we are still in the experimental stage with it.
