Get started with your next project.

Building in your shed is one of life’s simple pleasures.

Get started today, making your next home project. Small boats are fun to make, and fun to use. You don’t need many tools, or much room to do it, a single-car garage will do just fine. Turn heads when you head to the water, with something you created yourself.
