Beautiful! I like that technique. The lines look graceful which is not always the case with plywood boats.
It's got me thinking about a kayak. How does the boat handle? Do you get to use it much?

I just discovered enough cedar in my basement to make about 136 nine-foot strips. Not enough for a canoe, but maybe a small kayak.

The boards are 11/16, by the time I mill the bead and cove they'd be a shy 5/8.

I have a book by Gil Gilpatrick where he uses 2x4 stock, knots and all and makes very utilitarian boats. Maybe I can make a hybrid.

By the way, I noted the boom box in one of the shots, it seems no construction/shop photo is complete w/o one.
