Picture of How To Build A Plywood Canoe
You can build your son or daughter a plywood canoe in a weekend. The simplest canoes are made of just 3 pieces of plywood: the two sides, and the base. More complex shapes can be created, but these instructions are for a simple canoe. 

Step 1: Cut Out Two Strips

I would strongly suggest that anyone considering coating their canoe-boat with polyester resin should read up on it. I didnt when coating my canoe which resulted in the resin bubbling and flaking of. I later found out that this a condition called "Osmosis" due to the fact that polyester resin isnt waterproof. The sites that I have been all recommend " epoxy resin" which though more expensive does the job and lasts if coated with a UV protector such as yacht varnish or marine paint. Sorry to be a party pooper but I am having to strip mine and redo it after only on summer. my comment is only meant to helpful and possibly save someone from repeating my mistake, Space Alien.

A picture of a girl, however cute, in a canoe and a picture of a can of resin do not an instructable make. Like wrivera6 said, this sounds like a cool project, I would have liked to see pictures of it being built.

It would have been great to see actual pictures of you building the canoe. I would like to see how you cut and fastened every piece of plywood before you applied the resin. It looks like a great weekend project.

I did this, it was really fun. You should try it too. But it does take long.

Not trying to be rude or poke fun but when you say "Cut out two strips of plywood 10 inches in diameter" I think you mean width not diameter as diameter refers to circles.
