Wood Strip Canoes by Randy Pfeifer
These canoes are custom made of cedar wood strips bent around a form. The artist glues each strip on individually, using no staples or ties, resulting in a perfect flawless exterior. The wood is covered inside and out with fiberglass and epoxy to render it water-tight and lake- and river-worthy. Gunwale design, seat design, deck design and other details can be individualized, and a number of shapes and sizes are available. Custom inlay work can decorate the sides of the boats, and dark and light strips allow design elements to grace the hull of the canoe. These boats will turn heads, whether on the car roof-top carrier, in the water, or hanging from the ceiling of your home. They are beautiful.
