Build a skin-on-frame kayak!
Construction uses simple hand tools for the most part and a variety of other hand construction skills, like steam bending and sewing, which don’t require a high woodworking skill level, but rather challenge the versatility of the builder. After a concentrated week you’ll have a sleek kayak proportioned to your specific dimensions and a new access to the enjoyment of Michigan’s waters.This is a hand tool intensive class. There will likely be additional hours needed during this class, expect to work late some days.
