Made a Eastern Red Cedar Nomad

Here is a video of my project that I completed after 3 years. For those that are curious, yes, this is Juniperus virginiana and it was wonderful to work with (including the hundreds of required scarf joints). Enjoy!

In a word .... impressive.

The video is well done and you have definitely created something unique to be proud of IMO.

Good job.

Totally A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! What a beautiful canoe, and a great story. I love the differences between the sap wood and the hard wood, such contrasting colors make for a beautiful canoe. I hope you enjoy her for many years to come. Greg
When people find out what's really important in life, there's going to be a shortage of canoes.
