Small Wooden Boat Builder Resources

I created my own library, now numbering 300+ books, magazines and electronic documents.

Wooden Boat Magazine

Having subscribed on and off to Wooden Boat Magazine, I acquired all the back issues on USB.

From these, the following list of interest to canoe and kayak builders was created. Included are articles of value to builders of other small wood water craft.
