The Dory Book

Are looking to purchase dory plans? We can't help you, unfortunately - not because we're holding anything back or being unfriendly, but because we don't have any physical plans available to sell. We use the same jigs and patterns today that we were using 100 years ago. The knowledge is passed from builder to builder in a practical and hands-on way, not on paper. All is not lost, though - there is an excellent book written by John Gardiner, called The Dory Book. We have copies of it - one in the office and one in the workshop - and we refer to it often. The books can be ordered through your local bookstore, or you can order direct from us. $40 Canadian plus tax and shipping  -- keep in mind: it's a b-i-g book!
