Check out this amazing 18′ canoe made from a single sheet of plywood. Resembling a South American “pipante” dugout canoe, Finnish boat builder Hannu Vartiala designed and built his craft, “dug”, in an attempt to correct balancing issues he had with a previous design. He’s also put up instructions on his site so you can build your own. It sure is an impressive example of maximum use of materials with minimal effort. [via HackerNews]
