Format: Paperback
In my opinion strip built Canoe written by Randy Folsom is a well written book. I liked the content organization starts off from the basic areas and then dives into technical stuff as stripping, strip dimensions etc. I have built Canoe's for around 3 years now and the book brought out some great insights that were new to me as well. The illustrations are excellent as well. The language used by the author is simple enough to explain the technicalities very well. I believe this one of the best books out there for building Canoe's.

Strip Built Canoe by Randy Folsom is a fantastic book especially if you have never built a cedar strip canoe before. He effectively explains every step of building a canoe and of course, adds his own insight which improves upon conventional construction methods. Above all, one of the best features is the authors website which has a support email address allowing you to ask him questions if you need additional information. There are many books out there on this subject which I have read through but in my opinion this one has helped me out the best.

I purchased this book mainly for its sections on fiber glassing and finishing. It was the first time I had ever fiber glassed something, and this book has been an invaluable resource for step by step instructions as well as what tools to purchase. I did however purchase my fiberglass and resin from a different company than recommended in the book, because I was able to find better pricing.

There are lots of strip building books out there. I personally don't like the ornamental features here, canoes should be beautiful as unified forms not parkay floors, but many may well like these. The critical factor in choosing a book is what plans it recomends or supports. There are lots of good instruction manuals out there, and videos. Ted Moores work along with the free pamphlet he did with WEST Systems have the best technical information.

A must read for anyone planning on building a strip built boat, be it a canoe or kayak. The author has included many innovative techniques including some very cool rope clamps for stapleless construction and extensive coverage of the fiber glassing process. Everything is covered from ripping the strips to making monkey fist grab handles.

A great buy. This book has so many new ideas and techniques. I especially like the coverage on ripping the strips. It's clear to see that taking the time to make well made strips really saves a lot of time and effort overall. I was surprised how easy it is to create patterns using different colors of wood to make dotted line strips. I highly recommend this book for anyone that is considering building a canoe. The extensive pictures and illustrations cover every aspect so even a first time builder like me had no problem understanding each step.
