What tools do I need for kayak building?

Being minimalistic, you would only need a hand saw, knife, drill and a screw driver. Although a knife, smal hatchet and a drill would also suffice. For bending wood you would need a fire. you don’t really need a steaming device, just the heat.

For easier and possibly more accurate building if you’re not a craftsperson, you would also need:

  • band saw
  • table saw
  • electric planer (elhyvel)
  • plunge router (överhandsfräs)
  • electric drill/screwdriver
  • shallow angle hand planer (the smaller one hand version)
