Hello,

I make these miniature wood strip canoes and they are ready for the Gallery.

The one with the "fancy" seats is a courting canoe: popular before people were doing the sunday cruising in their cars, instead, they cruised the lakes and slow moving rivers.

 

Thank you for looking.

Thanks Art,

Yep and wood strip kayaks as well.  At 19" in size, they really are "mini" pieces.
