Wood canoe plans wood kayak plans

Personal Boat Designs

I design wood canoe and kayak plans with one person in mind - YOU!

Fine Wood Water Craft offers one-to-one custom design services so you can have a wood canoe or wood kayak designed uniquely for you at a reasonable price.

Living in the internet age has its advantages!

About the Service

I had created custom designs since the late 1990's offering custom design for stitch and glue canoes and kayaks. This hobby serves as an outlet for my interest in small wood water craft.

I've temporarily suspended custom design work. However numerous canoe plans are available for purchase.

Plans are under way (summer of 2017) to setup a self-serve ecommerce site offering plans for download.

Please call in the meantime if you are interested in a plan.

Wood Canoes and Kayaks

The designs found here were created for myself and a few other passionate paddlers looking for something better. They will give you an idea of what others like you had in mind and perhaps stimulate or refine your ideas.

As a hobby, I don't make vast sums of money at this, efforts to create custom designs as a business were less than optimal. However I enjoy the process and helping others. Most years, the revenue from plans will pay for the costs for domain registration and hosting.

Plans have been purchased by clients in USA, England, Sweden, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and South Africa.

Reasonable Rates

For existing plans, that is, designs currently available, the price is $80.00 USD.

Payment Options

I currently accept payment via. PayPal account accepts credit card payments.
