Come see THE ARK” and learn how it was made. Not your ordinary plastic kayak – THE ARK – is much lighter and is a joy to paddle and handle. Fabricating it offers both a challenging woodworking project and the opportunity for individual artistic expression. Hear about how its hull was crafted, how inlays were set in to give it its uniqueness, and about other similar watercraft. Also, see a demonstration of the age-old boat building skill of wood steam bending.
