Building a cedar strip canoe is not an easy task, and often takes months to complete. That being said, if you have the patience and are willing to stick with the project, the end result will be a canoe that is a work of art. With proper care, it will be a timeless piece as beautiful in 20 years as it is the day you finish it, and can be handed down through the family. Not only will it turn heads and get comments everywhere you go to paddle, but you can take pride in the fact that you built it with your own two hands.
