The paddle can be feathered or unfeathered. We will glue up the wood, cut the blade pieces, glue them to the shaft and shape the blades.

Build Your Own Stitch and Glue Night Heron at the WoodenBoat School

Once again I will be leading students through the building of the Stitch and Glue Night Heron from a pile of plywood pieces through a fully assembled sea kayak at the WoodenBoat School in Brooklin, Maine.

This fast-pace class is suitable for anyone from novice woodworkers who want an introduction to boatbuilding, through experienced boat builders who want to learn about stitch and glue kayak building and fiberglass work.
