The Making of a Birchbark Canoe

Forming the Canoe

The bark is laid down on the table. From there, a frame in the shape of the
bottom of the canoe is place on top of it and weighted down (above).
It is then folded up around the frame and held in place by gunwales,
which form the top of the canoe, and the L-brackets (below).
