Adam’s Rib: Gull Lake Boat Works [video]

this is an amazing look at the process used by Marc of Gull Lake Boat Works as he creates his custom wood and canvas canoes all by hand.

plus, he has a sweet set of tattoos on his forearm of the 4 symbols from Led Zeppelin’s 4th studio album (3:18 into the video).

    Awesome! Such remarkable craftsmanship.
    It reminds me of when I visited the Great Lakes Boat Building School in Cedarville, MI, where my father-in-law, Harry Martin, studied the art and craft of building wooden boats.
    Some day soon, he’ll have a shop like this one…without, perhaps, the Led Zeppelin tattoos.

    One of the best ads I’ve seen. The lighting and editing are remarkable. I love the changing depth of field effect on the boatribs.
