In addition to the McCord Museum's collection of paddles, they've got a nice set of model BirchBark canoes of various design. Here are three examples with some details. Clicking on each pic will forward you to the Museum's info page on each item
Algonquin or Atikamekw Model
Atikamekw model circa 1930-1960
Passamaquoddy model circa 1900-1910
These ones aren't built to scale and don't have the appropriate number of ribs but they are nonetheless attractive pieces of canoe art.
I'm an avid canoeist and general "outdoorsy type" guy with a bit of an artistic side. Recently started this hobby of making custom canoe paddles after my disappointing experience with most commercial brands. This site documents various styles of single blade canoe paddles I've made or researched as well as other canoe related info I've stumbled across on my internet wanderings. Hope you enjoy your visit.
