Cedar Strips without Bead & Cove. Most strip-kayak and strip-canoe builders use beads and coves, a sort of tongue-and-groove system milled into the strips, for tight fits and rapid assembly. But not every strip design benefits from that feature. Decorative accent from $58.00. Marine Plywood Project Pack.
The last cedar strip kayak completed in 2001 was "Dragonfly", which features a flowing asymmetric deck pattern, as well as mother of pearl and abalone shell inlay. The deck of this boat shows the strong color contrasts in the cedar. The dark brown variety of cedar is difficult to find in long clear length, but can be used in smaller fields.
