Cove & Bead Cedar Strips


The cedar strips we supply are cut from the same "Select Grade" Western Red Cedar lumber we use for our own canoes.

Carefully selected for the vertical grain characteristics desired in strip canoe construction, the lumber is planed to uniform thickness. After slicing into 1/4" thick strips, the pieces are then shaped on one edge with a "Bead" (convex) cut. The remaining edge is shaped with a "Cove" (concave) cut, resulting in the best edge treatment available for strip canoe construction.

The varying hues of the strips will surely make your canoe a handsome craft indeed!

Our Cove & Bead Strips package for our canoes contain a generous supply of strips...more than enough to complete the canoe hull, and include free shipping to the contiguous (lower 48) United States

OPTIONALLY AVAILABLE (to be included with your strip order):  Several of our "Accent Stripe" strips, enough to place one strip down each side of the canoe. These are milled to the same specifications as our cedar strips. This three-ply (Black Walnut - Pine -Black Walnut) lamination really adds an exciting embellishment to the hull! 

Please email us regarding the additional cost for the quantity of Accent Stripes you desire to be added to your wood strip order.

The cedar strips in the package may include some strips of random length and may vary between four and eight feet long, with 8 ft. long being the majority, if not all, of the package.
