BADASSAWESOME! Looks like you ditched the oak this time and went with a softer wood (pine, perhaps?). What did you do to the inside (the white) is it just painted or is it treated in some way to hold ice or something?

Nice, you make it look real easy! Those take a lot of time.

Thanks Guys, the wood is Douglas Fir which was a lot easier to use, but still bloody heavy. The insides are fibreglassed and painted with a foodsafe resin, unfortunately it only comes in Grey and won't hold any more pigment so I can't change the colour.
Johnny,, I've done 4 of them now and although I've sussed out a few tricks to speed up the process they are still one of the hardest things to carve, but I still want to try a full sized one at some point.

Here is the new prototype Mini canoe for Trader Vics, serves 6-8, carved from coco palm.
