Joe Seliga has been hand building canvas-on-wood canoes in his Ely, Minnesota, workshop for more than 60 years. Seliga's work is considered the best-of-the-best among canoe aficionados and wooden boat builders alike. This all-color celebration of hand craftsmanship and rustic elegance details from start-to-finish the construction of Seliga's canoes, from selecting the right woods through the project's inaugural launch. Within these pages the legacy of this master craftsman is passed on for all to enjoy.
