Strip building is the craft of turning a pile of thin strips of wood into a high-performance, durable boat. This method, sometimes called "strip-planked" or "woodstrip" is a great way to make a boat. You start with a form made of cross sectional stations. You bend thin strips of light weight wood such as cedar around these forms and edge glue the strips together.
Building a Cedar-Strip Kayak: The Basics | SkyAboveUs
He likes to challenge himself with creative projects at home. Having previously built two cedar strip canoes and one cedar strip kayak, I decided to start building another cedar strip kayak. My nephew who had moved in with me wanted to start the project, and I kind of had an itch to build another boat. It weighs about 60 lbs. It is faster on the water than a canoe and is very stable.
We offer a wide range of canoe and kayak kit materials and supplies for the do-it-your-selfer. We have chosen in our business to custom package kits rather than give you one price for each boat. We have chosen this method so that you can select the components that you wish packaged up and shipped. By reducing the amount of items shipped you will save yourself money by purchasing more items locally. We will work with you by listing the materials you need to build a boat and you can choose which components you wish.
