The following link is a short article I wrote (from a hobbyist standpoint) summarizing some of the steps in this construction process. It contains some pictures of the single person kayak I built, and just hits on some of the questions ERobert asked in the preceding reply.
To elaborate a bit more, the strips are cut off the edge of a plank of the given wood choice I am using. This is usually cedar or any other lightweight wood. I've found that getting a plank 8ft. to 10ft. long by about 3/4" thick by 6" to 8" wide is a size that one person can manage as you cut the strips on a table saw. With the fence set about 1/4" from the blade you get a strip that is 3/4" wide by 1/4" thick by the length of the plank. After the strips are cut, optionally is to run them thru a router to put a bead on one side and a cove on the other. The strips are then attached to the forms by using a staple gun (there are other methods too, but this is the quickest). Each subsequent strip is then edge glued (any ole' quality wood glue) before attaching to the forms. After the strips are attached and the glue is dried, you go thru the wonderfully fun task of pulling all the staples - ha. No need to worry however, as the process of sanding and wetting down the wood causes them to swell shut (mostly). And then the fiberglass shell seals it all shut anyway. So with that here is the link that shows a bit more, and of course if there are more questions, I would be glad to answer them. Again, this is just coming from a hobbyist who has found this to be a pretty cool past time.http://www.goneseakayaking.com/articles ... trip-kayak
