Woodworking

Eric Rochow at GardenFork liked Deek’s plywood boat so much he had to make his own. Learn to use a chalk line and see lots of build details for his custom spin on this one-sheet wonder.

    Hannu’s Boatyard is an awesome resource for single, and two sheet plywood boats, currently working on the 1 1/2 sheet ‘array punt’ with intentions of adding a tiny motor : )

    alot of theory of how to maximize plywood usage and most designs are not square, including an incredible 18′ canoe: 1 sheet!!

    The author conveyed to me that the past couple of years his focus has been elsewhere, thus the site hasn’t been updated, and i almost feel bad sending him a flood of MAKE: viewer emails ;)

    1. Thanks Ren! Our Labs, Henry and Charlie, are a big part of our lives. They are in most of our videos. They wont sit still in a boat, they always want to swim alongside.

  2. Big thanks to Becky for posting our vid here. and thanks to Derek for the lightbulb moment to build this.

    Now working on a 1 1/2 sheet boat with plywood left over from Hurricane Irene prepardness.  thx! eric.

  3. I’m thinking combine this with that drill motor thing from a couple weekends ago but replace the drill with the 36v dewalt and the battery pack with some thunderstruck cells
