Buying material

I was wondering if any knows the best place to purchase materials for the canoe. I am looking for Cedar wood, other wood for trim/accents, and Fibre Glass cloth/resin/hardener. I do not have a large budget for this project because I am building it for a friend and I am only charging him for material. I am living in eastern Ontario and something close to Ottawa would be great. Thanks.


  1. check out handcrafted canoes they sell all you will need


  2. Thank you. However, I went to my local hardware store and purchased some clear 4" x 4" and milled it myself. It worked out good. I was also a lot cheaper.
    I have posted pics of my progress on my web site. Feel free to check it out.
