Most special on this project was the fact that we started empty handed, went into the Ontario woods with Tom, and gathered all the materials we needed. In 14 days we built the birchbark canoe with hand tools only, and natural materials. Working together with Tom Byers, who taught us his skills, was quite an experience and very instructive.
