STRIPPER is a ribless canoe made from narrow wood strips, covered with fiberglass inside and out.
The composite construction produces high strength with low weight while displaying the natural beauty of the wood.
With Instructables you can share what you make with the world, and tap into an ever-growing community of creative experts.
Use the table saw with feather boards clamped to the guide and table to keep the strip thickness uniform. The strips used for the stems need to be steamed and clamped onto the stem forms then allowed to dry before gluing them together.


Once the hull is completely stripped it is time to trim the strips flush with the bow and stern stems. Gunnels are long strips of wood which are attached inside and outside to the top edge of the hull to give it rigidity when combined with the thwart.
Really nice job,to buy a canoe like that one would dent the bank account for sure,but worth it.
Canoe Craft by Ted Moores, Kayak Craft by Ted Moores, Building a Strip Canoe by Gil Gilpatrick. The wood strips alone are held together with glue and the hull eventually would swell and leak without the fiberglass or some sort of water proofing.


The problem I had was that I cut mu own straps with a table saw and they were not very consistent in thickness, even along the length of the same strip. The fiberglass cloth on inside and outside of the wood makes a laminated core structure which is very stiff and strong.
