Brand new to woodworking, Fiance' wanted some wooden lantern type centerpieces made for our wedding. I started doing some calculations and realized buying 36” dowels from Home Depot for $3.90 a piece was going to cost me a fortune.I then decided to rip and make my own dowls and bases from a much more manageable piece of 1×8 longboard :)(those pics to come later)Long Story short, I have a dinky, tiny 1 car garage that has my fiance's school stuff (She is a 4th grade teacher) all through it so space is limited. I needed a mobile workbench/outfeed table to move to the driveway on nice days to maximize space… So this is it!
The two kayaks are identical except for the color scheme. Made from a plan from CLC boats, with 4mm marine plywood. This is not from a kit. After cutting the panels, I temporarily glue the edges and then I fiberglassed the interior and exterior of the deck and the hull and then joined them together. More fiberglass and epoxy, sanding and painting and done.(400 hours later) This kayak will support 100lb. Is about 8' long and 24 wide and weighs about 42lb.
