Though not as detailed as the The Weymontaching Birchbark Canoe by Camil Guy that I posted about earlier, this book is still a fantastic read which documents some of the challenges faced by this builder. Particularly funny was how he couldn't collect enough gum to seal the canoe so he "stole it" from trees tapped by his "best friend". He then would quickly hide the gum if his friend happened by so as not to ruin their friendship. Not full of too many sketches or diagrams but there are plenty of black & white photos documenting the standard construction process.
Sample photos from the book including Bob Pine sealing the canoe with "stolen gum" taken from his best friend's trees
Thanks to Bob Bob Bear's Paddling Club for taking the time to document and post this on his site.
