The Warmth Of Wood

  1. never cared about it, the whole boating thing. but the workmanship that went to making something like that, I do like and care for
    having tried to steam and bend wood, I know just how hard it is.
    some people can just do it, I think the best I ever got was close to 50% of the boards to work out. it is a skill and a lot of work to get right.

  2. With the kayaks there is no steaming and bending… they are made from cedar strips around forms. Lots of time, sanding and love. And lots of expensive wood working tools and skill…

  3. These are just beautiful. Building one is in my bucket list. Something like this can become an heirloom piece, if done right
