Canoe Building

Graceful lines, golden wood, swift and quiet, the boat you build with your own hands redefines paddling.  If you can whittle a marshmallow stick, you can build a canoe. Building a cedar strip canoe starts with canoe plans and now you can get free canoe plans for any NorthWest canoe hull design.  Check out our fresh new design, the NWC Cottager.

Make NorthWest Canoe your supplier of choice for strips, fiberglass, epoxy… we stock all the stuff you need to build your cedar strip canoe. Sure, you can do the scavenger hunt routine and save a couple bucks. But, unlike Craig's List lumber or a gorilla-size internet retailer, we build canoes for our day job. We actually enjoy talking with our customers too.

Canoe strips. That's easy. We stock boat-length plus shorter strips for FedEx/UPS ground shipment. Free shipping on shorts means you can start your canoe building project this weekend.
