Wooden Canoe Builders' Guild - Home Page

Welcome to the web site of the Wooden Canoe Builders' Guild, an organization dedicated to the promotion and celebration of wooden canoes and kayaks. In part, the members of the Guild accomplish this mission through the repair and restoration of cedar canvas canoes, cedar strip canoes and other types of wooden canoes. We are involved in the construction of new wooden canoes for sale and the teaching of the methods involved in this work.

In this website we will tell you a bit about how cedar canvas canoes are built, our construction standards for new canoe construction and canoe restoration. You can learn about canoe care and maintenance, canoe history, interesting individuals involved in canoe construction and view many pictures of canoes both old, new and restored. We hope you enjoy your visit.
