Canoe Builder
I think what I like the most about restoring these old canoes in a garage or home shop is the problem solving involved with not working in a dedicated shop to this purpose. Attached are several pictures of a few solutions I've come up with for soaking and steaming long gunnels, and an outfeed table for long pieces. This forum is great for sharing ideas that work. Thanks, Pete

Two things: gives new meaning to "cold storage" and if you turn the saw around can you in-feed straight from the truck rack? ;)
 
Hi Steve, I can use the car for the infeed but it doesn't leave much room to stand behind the saw for a 20' board as my shop is only 24' deep. I've got a 16' Chestnut canvased and drying and am working on the 1914 OT IF. Do you have projects at the moment? Pete
