Antique canoes give you a unique view of nature.
There are some things that just get better with age! Things like fine wine, delectable cheeses, and antique canoes are among them. Here at Cook Craft, I have a particular fondness for the beauty and craftsmanship that went into the creation of many antique canoes, and I am ready to use my numerous skills to restore your antique canoes to their former glory.
I use only the highest-quality products and methods when it comes to repairing, restoring and revitalizing antique canoes. I understand the work that went into making these canoes and know how to replicate pieces so that they will be seamless when it comes to the finished product.
After carefully stripping or sanding away varnishes or paint, I painstakingly remove and repair any broken or rotted pieces and meticulously replace and repair the areas with strong, locally sourced hardwoods from the Ontario forests. I then carefully antique and restore the wood to a pristine condition and protect it using premium marine varnish for strong, reliable waterproofing and UV protection.
If you have an old, antique canoe that is waiting to be restored or repaired, I want to help! This is one of my favorite things to do! I have been working with people inMuskoka for many years and would love to help restore your canoe to something that can be trusted and enjoyed once again.
