Making a Dugout Canoe ~ by WoodlandsTV

Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

Artistic woodworker Arthur de Mowbray puts real heart into his craft as he shares his obvious skill and enthusiasm for designing and building a contemporary leisure boat from available timbers. He talks us through the making of `The Mighty Sparrow`, from a fourteen foot long poplar log. Arthur takes traditional boat-building methods and adapts them to suit the lighter, smaller poplar - whilst still using oak off-cuts for specific structural items. From cutting, carving, stretching and stabilising - to `wearing` the beautiful finished boat - Arthur `s respect for the wood and for his craft is clear. http://www.arthurdemowbray.co.uk/dugout-canoes.
