I was given an old canoe frame recently used as interior decoration while hung from ceiling of an "A frame" house. It's in good shape, 14 ft LOA, 31 in beam and the stringer/ribands look and feel like mahogany. They're fastened to plywood frames with iron nails. The shape is fair and there's no apparent rot. I don't know much about canoes and assume it must have been the structural support of a canvas canoe at some point.

I'd be grateful for anyone's ideas and thoughts as I contemplate a shop project for next winter. Thanks!
Addendum: I'd also appreciate help with trying to directly insert images into WB Forum posts. Although the links below directly access the pictures when entered directly into a browser, I couldn't get WB software to upload the pcitures directly into the post from photobucket.com and now I see the links are not "active" in the WB Forum post. Sorry for the nuisance.
