Our plans depict the station molds and stem-backers full size, making it easy to transfer the shapes to pieces of plywood, which you can use to assemble a form to build a wood and canvas canoe. These plans work equally well for building a solid form or an open form. They come with a description of how to construct a solid form. We recommend Building the Wood and Canvas Canoe Form video for additional information. For more information on the open form process see the article: originally published in the “Wooden Canoe” “Building a One-Off Wood & Canvas Canoe”.
