COYOTE, a Wee Lassie canoe built by David Wohl, won Honorable Mention both in 2012 and 2013 at Mystic Seaport in the Concours d’Elegance competition in the Owner Built/Man-powered division. See the next photo to admire the stunning inlay.

Coyote Inlay

The circular coyote inlay on the front deck is framed in purple heart. The coyote is African padauk, and its eye is brass. The mountainside is Brazilian rosewood, the night sky is black walnut with silver stars and the moon is burled maple with a nice burl that looks like a crater.

Designed and built by veteran boat builders Gregg Hatten and Roger Fletcher, this handcrafted wooden rocking boat is a replica of the historic McKenzie Style Drift Boats that run the Big Water Rivers of the Pacific Northwest. (Does this little boat seem familiar? Maybe thats because it's a 1/3 scale version of Portola featured on the cover of Epoxyworks 35.)

This stand up paddle board, commonly called a SUP, was loving hand crafted by Joe Pakkala. His attention to detail is impressive in the herringbone inlays and the non-skid foot pads incorporated into the epoxy's finish. As opposed to traditional adhesive non-skid pads, incorporating the nonskid into the epoxy allows you to have a safe place to stand without covering the beauty of a natural wood finish.
