Adirondack Canoe Raffle
Monument Arts and Cultural Center in Bennington , VT is raffling off a 1960s Adirondack canoe that was built by the Algonquin / Ojibwa Native Americans of Trois-Rivers Quebec ( three rivers ).
It is “ strip-built ” of cedar with copper nails . Strip-built canoes are constructed by gluing together ¼x¾ strips of wood over a building jig consisting of station molds that define the shape of the hull . The strips may be square cut , or for a better fit , they are shaped bead and dove router bits . Once the strips are glued together , the inside and outside are sanded fair , and a fiberglass and epoxy covering is applied to the canoe inside and out . This treatment made it possible to use the canoe without submerging it for several hours to seal the wood . The fiberglass covering is transparent , allowing the wood strips to be seen . The construction made the canoes lightweight for easy portages between lakes .
This canoe was used in several Adirondack Lakes for 20 years by the arts center ’ s founder and builder Bruce Laumeister . Raffle tickets are $ 50 each and proceeds go to benefit MACC . The winner will be chosen at MACC ’ s May 4 Gala . monumentcentervt . org .
