Photo Request: Canoe building, repair, maintainence

Roger Kugler

Enthusiastic about Wooden Canoes
Hi All,
One more request. I need a few photos to be used on the soon-to-be-released, all new, Builders and Suppliers Directory. Close ups would be really nice, ie. sanding a blank, nailing tacks, steam rising from a new rib, a brush laying down a flesh coat of paint--I know, "who takes photos like that!" Any aspiring 'canoe photo-illustrators' out there? Email me directly or post a reply so others can vote!
Thanks in advance,
Roger

Paul - I'll pull these if you'd rather I not share 'em.

These are from the open house at Paul Miller's shop outside Chicago from a couple summers ago. No particularly tricky maneuvers here, but fun to watch nonetheless.

No problem Brad,

I was just trying to think who has pictures of anyone actually doing something to a canoe.

I'm not taking pictures of myself while doing anything, nor would any of the rest of us as most don't work in teams.

Here is a shot of Peter messing with a canoe, I think he was removing the nails of the old outwale.

The others are from a workshop about doing canvas.

Maybe I can find more.

Paul

Well, I posted a build thread a while back that is here. We were building a Model 1889 with Jerry Stelmok up at the WoodenBoat School (along with an Atkinson Traveler and an American Beauty) You're welcome to use any of the images that you find useful.
 
Thanks everyone!

I am super impressed! These are exactly the photos I was looking for.
Thanks so much,
Roger
