Western red cedar strips measuring 1/4" x 13/16". Please review the product details fully before ordering.

Noah’s strips are made from premium quality full length Western Red Cedar, no need for splices in your Canoe, Kayak, or Small Boat. The strips are cut from a single 3” plank fed through a multi head milling machine.  The resulting 8 bead and cove strips are ¼” x ¾” (6mm x 19mm), exactly the same profile and wrapped together in sequence as they came out of the plank. The strips shipped as bundles for building most Canoes and Kayaks consist 8 packages of 8 strips = 64 strips, most strips are edge grain, light brown to pink, but there usually are some darker strips as well as some with flat grain.

This product is shipped in a strong cardboard tube 18′ long x 8″ diameter. The contents are wrapped in plastic to protect against moisture. Weight is approximately 65 lbs.

We’ve known for years that some varieties of wood used in boat building, like western red cedar and eastern white cedar, were a limited resource. Shipping these woods from Canada around the world is becoming unsustainable due to both availability and shipping costs, and the impact on the environment can’t be ignored.

Considering that only part of the hull requires full-length strips, we are now including some shorter strips in the bundles we send. When you open your bundle of planking you will see that you have enough long strips to plank the length of your boat where full length is required. There will also be some bundles of shorter strips that can be used where full length is not required. This will require some planning on your part to create the colour pattern you desire.
