Birch Bark Canoes

I came across a seven video series done by Ray Mears for BBC TV.  Working with an Algonquin canoe builder, they built a birch bark canoe in 9 days from raw materials and basic hand tools.  I think you'll find it informative, interesting, and with the humorous banter between them as they work, just plain entertaining to watch.  Total viewing time is about 45 min.  This link connects you to the first of the series, and you can follow one to the next.  The second link is just a view at a series of bark canoes.
