Building a Wooden Pirogue
I have tried my best to make the boat building pages as clear as possible. The boat building pages are best viewed at a resolution of 1024x768 or higher. The instructions provided on this website are not always detailed enough and are "my way" of doing things. Ask 10 different boat builders or woodworkers how to do 1 thing and you'll get 10 different answers. This page provides an overview of the pirogue building portion of this website. I have also provided a glossary of terms in case you need it. If you have any questions you can visit my Contact Me page.
