Peterborough Restoration

Peterborough Resoration 033, originally uploaded by creativelenna.
I have been just a little bit under the weather with a small cold and so I have not gotten out to walk and take pictures lately. But Steven and my dad are doing something cool and Steven snapped some photos! My dad built this cedar strip, featherweight canoe in the early 1990's and it has been used a lot. The bottom of it was quite scratched, so Steven and my dad decided to restore it by sanding it down and re-applying the epoxy finish. It is looking quite beautiful already and Steven is learning a few tricks from my dad. : ) Click on the picture for a couple more of the restoration and a few other recent additions.
