Rugged Material is a young travel goods company with a lot to be thankful for. We love producing leather wallets, belts, briefcases, backpacks and watch straps, but more than making them we love interacting with the awesome people who use our products. It is so fun to see all the places you travel to and hear your stories about our products.

This Vlog entry explains my first real exposure to design and making. Building this Cedar Strip Canoe with my dad from age 12-15 taught me that I love design and I can do hard things. This was one of the best lessons I have learned from my dad.

For more info on building your own Cedar Strip Canoe check out the book by Ted Moores called Canoe Craft-
