Bark Canoe Building at Penobscot Marine Museum

A new birchbark canoe of Penobscot Indian design is under construction at Penobscot Marine Museum in Searsport, Maine, under direction of Master builder Steve Cayard. I've posted a bunch of photos of the construction in process here, as well as a few shots of an extraordinarily beautiful canoe that Steve recently completed, shown above. Anyone in the Midcoast Maine area is strongly advised to come to the museum this week or next to observe. This is a true master at work on one of the world's finest indigenous boat types.
