Preszler Woodshop handcrafts heirloom quality canoes using traditional woodworking techniques. Each boat is painstakingly molded from hundreds of hand-cut wood strips during an exacting process that takes a year to complete. A Preszler Woodshop canoe is a functional work of art that is meant to be passed down through generations. Each vessel is made by the artist in his woodshop on the North Fork of Long Island — a barn built in 1820 which served as the original Mattituck Village Blacksmith. His practice is imbued with the elements of the outdoorsman: wood, water, sky, and life.
The intricacy and details of the canoes really sing by having a simplistic website that matches the no-fuss brand image. To make things easy to update, we created the website via Squarespace and put together a how-to manual for reference.
