This DVD covers the boats built by most manufacturers of the pre 1960’s such as Peterborough, Lakefield, Ross, Dunphy, Chetek, Lyman, and more. Most manufacturers used the same construction methods of thin cedar strips running fore and aft held together with copper nails fastened together through steam bent ribs so they were generally known as cedar strips. These boats were very common before and after the war and most people remember them and many people still own one, but usually in very poor condition. Because this type of construction was unique to cedar strip boats, most wooden boat restoration shops have a hard time dealing with them and usually won’t take them or if they do, the work is of questionable quality. This DVD addresses all the common problems with cedar strips and the tools required are all common tools and the woodworking skills are in the average range.
