Canoe Strips - Sitka Spruce

Sitka Spruce - incredible stiffness to weight ratio. Sitka Spruce offers fine, even texture and consistently straight grain. Color is consistent too, a nice creamy shade, at times bordering on pale pink. Strips will feel stiffer than cedars, but still easy to work around your forms. It planes and holds staples quite nicely. Slightly heavier than the other species we offer, it comes at about 27 lbs. cu./ft.

Boat builders treasure this wood for masts and spars because of its exceptional strength. But you'll find it in everything form airplanes to guitar tops... oh, and did we mention we use a lot of it on our North Canoes. Check out the photos of the Hugh Davidson on our Facebook page.
