Handcrafted Red Cedar Strip Built Kayak Wood Scale Model 41"

This beautiful Kayak Model is handcrafted from beautiful strips of Canadian Western Red Cedar wood (a very rare, soft yet very strong timber). It is then coated with an outer coat of clear fiber glass.
This cedar strip kayak model is completely hand built by skillful and creative master craftsmen, using a process called Strip-building which is a method of boat building commonly used for canoes and kayaks, but also suitable for larger boats. The process involves securing narrow, flexible strips of wood edge-to-edge around temporary forms. The strips are typically secured to each other with glue or nails. The roughly covered hull is then smoothed and reinforced with fiberglass before removing it from the forms. The inside is then smoothed and similarly reinforced.
Included with this Kayak model is a 2 bladed wooden kayak paddle and a wood stand.
This model measures 41" long from bow to stern. It's a beautiful model that is sure to be a conversation piece for any room or office.
