A lot of reenactment level work is about learning appropriate historical crafts and skills. This board is for all general skills that don't have their own forum.

Do you have a hand drill or auger? Great for drilling a bunch of holes close together and then chipping out the rest. I've never done anything as large as a canoe, but it works well for cups, bowls, boxes, etc. Burning out as Eofor suggested is also a very traditional method. Multiple, low, controlled burns. You could even turn it into a barbeque event. haha!

Unfortunately, there are portions that have to be, essentially, "undercut" for this particular design, and so flames would too easily burn parts of the boat that I need to remain intact. Definitely already thought that one through thoroughly.
