I could not resist just posting one photo. About a month ago I started on a new build project - a skin-on-frame canoe. It is held together with polyester whipping cord. When I get so far, the skin will be nylon cloth and thereafter some varnish to waterproof. The ribs have been steam-bent. I have also steam-bent the ends of the stringers to help get the wood to twist at the bow and stern so that the wood can lie relatively flat.
