Over my many years of messing about in wooden boats I have built them, repaired them, and renovated them.

I'm just an ordinary guy doing it in my spare time.

So You can do it too.

I am near the completion of my latest project the rebuilding of Mignonne.

So, I'm putting this resource together in the hopes that it will be of help to anyone else who is interested in wooden boats.

Perhaps you dream of having a Cabin cruiser big enough for your Family holidays, weekends or even to sail the world.

On the other hand perhaps you would prefer a single seated kayak to explore the wilderness.

Or, a row boat for fishing. Whether you want a canoe, a row boat or a cabin cruiser there are hundreds of styles and designs to choose from.

They are all very doable for the home builder. Also there are many Wood Boat Kits available which simplify the building process for the novice.

However if you are planning that big boat it is always worth starting with a Small Boat project. 

Why not begin with a tender for your bigger dream boat.

Make a good job of that and you will feel much more confident about tackling that big job.

Glorious details will develop as you consider and reconsider your dream in the light of good advice. 

Seeing what others have achieved will help keep you focused.

And there are hundreds of people out there just like you creating superb boats from environmentally friendly Wood.

PS. Start building that boat and soon folk will be coming to you for advice and to admire Your Beautiful Wood Boat.

I am perfectly aware that the majority of Wooden Boat aficionados are sensible folk.
However, I need to point out that I am an amateur wooden boat enthusiast simply writing in order to try to help other amateur wooden boat enthusiasts.
And while I take every care to ensure that the information in DIY Wood Boat.com is correct, anyone acting on the information on this website does so at their own risk.
