Location: Northern Maine and out of the city.
This little model is 35" from tip to tip.
The width is 7 1/4 " wide at the center of the canoe.
I stretched canvas over the canes hull, filled the canvas with a special filler made up
of special oils and hand rubbed this magic potion into the canvas weave.
Green enamel paint with a lacquer clear coat over all wooden parts,
and over the paint also.
The little brass looking parts at each of the canoes ends is just that solid brass bands.
The two little seats are hand caned with natural cane.
Thanks for looking.
