Ken first learned to build canoes in 1968 and has added over 75 new projects to his list since then. A former student at the Wooden Boat School in Brooklin, Maine, Ken keeps refining the cedar strip construction technique. The chevron has become his trademark. Recently, Ken was invited to teach a woodstrip building class in Norway. Visit Ken's web site to learn more about cedar-strip canoe building www.kencanoe.com.
