fancy canoe stand

Post by nicktheww2fanatic » Sat Oct 16, 2010 7:43 pm

Hey folks! I'm getting married in 8 months, and we have decided to use my Redbird as the gift table/canoe. One thing...my current stands are some 2x4's and old carpet. I want to make some sharp looking (and functional) stands so that it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb.

Any ideas?

Great idea Nick. You could easily built something out of a 3/4" hardwood, and use leather straps to support the canoe.

hmmm, I'm liking that idea. Anyone got any plans lying about? I am quite worried about the sturdiness/stability of the stands. The 2x4 ones I have are slightly wobbly after 2-3 years.
