Re: Nice! How'd you do the bow? *PIC*

Hi Stephen,
I bought the building Manuel from Rob Macks for the fire star. I used Rob's building method and adapted that to the station forms of the Nikumi. I did the stern the same way. Rob Macks methods for building these are excellent, Rob is an artist. I give the bow and stern credits to Rob Macks at Laughing Loon Kayaks.
There is a lot of twist in the strips at the bow. I had to use a heat gun to persuade the strips to twist that much.
