This week we have THE " Garrett Conover" visiting to help out in the shop. Garrett has the pleasure of making planking. Yesterday he and Rollin planed the larger rough stock into the proper width. Then later they resawed the pieces into rough plank thickness. Now Garrett is planing them into uniform thickness. Later he will send them through the the thickness sander as many times as needed to sand them to a finish exact thickness. The will have a final pass on the best side so they all have one finished side. This process will take the better part of today.
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.
