This nautical handcrafted Canoe Bookcase Book Shelf is perfect for books, shells and pictures in a home office or living room and it is brand new. The canoe bookcase is manufactured by "Woodenboat USA" (formally Grande Canoes) a division of our fully assembled model ship & boats company OMH Inc. Woodenboat USA has more than 30 years of wood working experience and a passion for the water crafts they build.
This beautiful canoe bookcase is handcrafted from strips of 100% Canadian western red cedar wood (a very rare, soft yet very strong timber). American Beech hardwood is used for the shelf trim. The hull is then covered with an invisible layer of clear fiber glass cloth which is bonded with watertight clear epoxy resin and is then coated with marine varnish. This combination of fiberglass & epoxy is very strong & abrasion resistant and completely transparent so that the beauty of the wood shows through while protecting it for generations. There are five shelves.
This cedar-strip canoe book shelf 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. The process involves securing narrow, flexible strips of wood edge-to-edge around temporary forms. The strips are secured to each other with epoxy glue.
