Thank you! It probably cost around $550 but I don't know exactly, I didn't keep track of the time but it took about 9 months to build.
Thanks! It's a fun project.

Yeah! It’s a lot easier to cut small strips on the left side of the blade because otherwise you’d have a 1/4 inch between the blade and the fence. That would make pushing the wood through difficult and maybe unsafe.
I know there are some tandem kayak plans and maybe a triple kayak, but it might work for you to build a canoe for three seats.
Awesome backpack, and very informative also!

Not sure about bamboo, it would make a nice looking boat! You can look of tables that list densities of various types of Woods, and that would show you which ones are lighter.
Thanks! Scratches look great on a kayak ;)
Thanks! Good luck if you decide to build a canoe!
Thanks! It's fun to paddle, just had it out on the water yesterday.
It’s hard to say how many hours but I started this in July/August and then went to college. I worked on it when I got home over thanksgiving, winter, and spring break, and finished it in June when I got home from school. It cost around $550 and I cut costs as much as possible. I saved $100 by drawing my own plans and cut the cost of wood by a lot by cutting the strips myself. The kayak kits you can buy cost around $1200 so I saved a lot of money.
Thanks a lot! It just takes a lot of reading and google searches
I appreciate it!
