Two cedar clapboards and a panel of plywood are the major materials for this floating beauty.

You don’t have to be a boatbuilder to make this 65-pound, 16-foot canoe in a weekend. The cedar-clapboard sides produce and hold the hull shape when they are bent around the midframe and joined at the ends. Fit in the wedge-shaped stems at bow and stern, fasten on the bottom panels of 1/4/" exterior plywood, and you actually have a floatable boat after about two hours’ work.
