Dear all, firstly I am new on here. I am attempting to make a 16ft Birchbark canoe from notes and materials supplied to me by Steve Cayard. I live in the UK and the only cedar available here is Western Red Cedar. I have carved the two inwhales 1 1/4” depth x 1” wide using Western Red Cedar. I plan to steam bend them, my question is how long should I steam bend them for because I am using Red Cedar and not White? Also what wood other than white cedar would be recommended for the ribs?
