“I went with Newfound to build my strip canoe. All the help that I needed was provided. I built an Abenaki but shortened it just enough so that I could use 16’ strips without splicing. I ordered yoke thwart, cane seats and decks from them. Everything was high quality. When I tried the decks they didn’t fit because of my length alteration. I called and explained my predicament and they cut new decks and shipped them to me immediately while I packaged and shipped the decks I had back to them so they crossed in the mail. Great people to work with and high quality milled parts and materials. Prices are reasonable too. Highly recommended them”.

James Turk wrote on Google:

“The kit supplied for my canoe was excellent in every way. The millwork was perfect and the quality of the strips was first rate. The strongback was as straight as a die. The tools, etc. supplied with the kit were of the very highest quality. It is obvious that this company and the people in it do not compromise on quality; what a joy in this day and age.”

“Newfound Woodworks is an absolutely fantastic company. After talking with Rose (one of the owners) for hours, and barraging her with endless questions (which she answered happily and tirelessly,) I decided to buy a canoe building kit. It arrived right on schedule and was everything I had hoped for. Over the course of my then-month build, I emailed and called Rose at least a dozen times with questions. Each time she responded right away and provided expert advice. It is apparent that she truly cares about her customers. I cannot recommend this company enough! Thank you Rose!!!”

“I purchased a kit for a 17 foot Nipmuck canoe last year, The quality of the kit was really so much more than I expected. I called several times with questions and Alan and Rose will patiently answer all your questions, this was very helpful during the build. I would highly recommend buying a kit from Newfound Woodworks you will have a finished product you will treasure for years to come. The workmanship of this kit was amazing and I could not be happier with my almost completed canoe.”

“Al and Rose are ultra-professional folks who want to see their customers succeed with building the boat of their dreams. I have built two boats from Newfound Woodworks’ kits and plan to build many more in the future. Every time I see Al and/or Rose they are very helpful and accommodating.”
