I’m building a canoe

 

I found a ton of Western Red Cedar in my garage. The previous owner left it in the rafters. I decided to build a canoe out of it.

I haven’t been documenting the project because it feels too much like work. Creative hobbies are supposed to be relaxing. But I did shoot a short video which you can see at the link below.

This video uses a descriptive narration for the visually impaired. The first little bit is audio only, skip ahead to 50seconds for video.
