I was very struck by this super post over at Duckworks explaining how Adam Wicks-Arshack became apprenticed to a birch bark canoe  builder. He learned his skills building this impressive 26-footer.

  1. I work with birch bark (beresta) all my life but i even can't imagine that something like a ship can be made of the one!

  2. Where was the photo of the 26 ft canoe taken? Is it New Brunswick near Norton?
