Cedar Strip Canoe Virtual Boat Tour with Josh Tolkan

Posted on Wed, Jun 17 at 10:00am

Josh Tolkan is a resident artisan and boatbuilder at North House. He built an original design cedar strip canoe commissioned by the Cook County Chamber of Commerce. Inspired by the Danish double-ended sailboats ("spidsgatters") the design is asymmetrical and features a pigmented epoxy strip as well as elm salvaged from the beloved trees that lined Highway 61 in Grand Marais.

See more of Josh's work at his website, Many Waters Boatworks.
