Beautiful birch bark canoe made by a local builder. Obviously, birchbark exterior. White cedar ribs and planking. Sewn with spruce roots and sealed with a mix of spruce gum, bear grease and bees wax. Ash gunnels. All cedar split by hand using a hatchet. Only other tool is a custom ground farrier's knife with a deer antler handle. There are no sawn boards in the canoe. Everything is hand split to follow the grain of the wood. The canoe starts as a birch bark envelope, and is built from the inside, out. All ribs and planking are bent and fitted in place by eye. Estimate is 400-500 hrs. to build the boat. Estimated weight is 70 lbs. for this 12' canoe. All artwork done by the builder.
