Artistic cedar strip kayak builder, lightweight high performance wooden kayaks

Our award winning kayaks* are hand crafted using old growth cedar, redwood or mahogany, and are inlayed with exotic hardwoods. Since the studio and home are in a remote location, we generate our power with a micro hydro plant powered by a creek. Hand tools are used for all but the wood strip milling and sanding. Each detail has to pass a strict quality control. The boats are built one at a time, spending over 350 hours to create a unique piece of quality wood working. You can choose to have your kayak’s planking matched or multicolored, displaying the many hues of the wood species.
