Here you can follow how a Black Pearl is taking form to a strip built Greenland rolling kayak.


Step by step as I work with it in the workshop. At the last page you will see what's done today ....


It's all made with simple tools, spruce wood, glass/carbon fibre and epoxy.


Quite easy - but it takes time,

and I love that time it takes!


A picture often tells all you need but if you want more instructions, please have a look into the Buildning Manual by Björn Thomasson
