Passing the time during the Pandemic

A story by Don V from 2020

Completed canoe

The Pandemic requires that more time is spent at home to prevent the spread of the infection. To keep busy I undertook building a cedar strip canoe. I began in May 2020 and finished it in October 2020. I had already completed 3 cedar canoes and still had material left from my last one that I completed in 2015.

Beginning the canoe. The "strongback" was used on my previous canoes. The wheels are so I can roll it outdoors when sanding.
