Canoecraft : An Illustrated Guide to Fine Woodstrip Construction Paperback
by Ted Moores
Canoecraft is the ultimate guide to building a wood-strip canoe.
Thousands of canoes have been built using Canoecraft over the last 30 years.
Now revised and expanded with 32 pages of colour, this international bestseller, known as the 'Bible of canoe building' is back, bigger and better than ever.
Ted Moores is a master builder of woodstrip/epoxy canoes.
Over four decades teaching wooden-boat construction, he discovered that the same dream motivates all of his students, no matter their age: to build something beautiful and functional.
Canoecraft is the road map to that dream. Moores offers comprehensive instructions for the first-time builder, and for the second-time builder.
He adds a variety of canoe plans, each presented as a traditional table of offsets.
There is also a series of builder's tips and techniques, and an entire chapter on carving a paddle, the perfect accompaniment to a handcrafted canoe.
The author's counsel is straightforward: 'When good materials are used and simple steps are performed with care, professional results are sure to follow.'Whether the goal is to build a general-purpose recreational canoe, or an efficient modern tripping canoe, or a full-decked fast-cruising canoe with walnut veneer, Canoecraft is the ideal guide to making it happen successfully.

Review by dryfly
As far as I can tell, this is the best how-to book on building a strip canoe. As far as I know, I've read all of the available books on strip building a canoe.
