  3. Summer Breeze sailboat

    Between a new job, various programs we run for and projects we do with disadvantaged kids, building my living roof workshop, and replumbing the house, we ended up pretty burned out come late spring. The county 4H foundation has a big annual fundraiser, we had to go early in the morning to take...
  4. SandBox Boat

    My kids wanted a sand box and I kept putting it off, one day after I bought a storage cabinet my two daughters started playing Dora the Explorer in the box. The cabinet's box was the boat , and they played in that old box everyday till it fell apart. So I thought why not make the sandbox a multi...
  5. Friendship Marquetry ... the Other Two

    I cut this marquetry in classic style from packets of four layers of veneer. The first two now adorn the doors of my desk and were posted over a week ago. These were almost finished then as well but I've spent too much time sailing to get them done until now. This retired life is rough. These...
  6. boarding ladder for sailboat

    This is a folding boarding ladder I made to mount on the stern of our 26' sailboat. It has hooks at the top so it can be detached and stowed aboard when the sailboat is on her mooring. The hardware is from a kit I found online. The wood is mahogany with three coats of Helmsman spar urethane...

  8. Sailboat update

    Thought I would give you all an update on my sailboat. Working on the bottom battens now then the bottom planking. Soon it will at least look water tight! In the first picture I have some visitors from couchsurfing.com from NY and France that I am putting to work, slave labor is cheap, but they...
  9. Toy sailboat

    Toys! Toys! The way I see it, as a beginner, toys are really my strong suit right now. As long as the kid is young enough, they'll think it's neat no matter what, and won't even notice any flaws! Ha! Therefore, I decided to make this for my boyfriend's 5 yr old son. I used some white wood scrap...
  10. Wooden Model Boats

    These are two more old projects I made long before I had a woodshop. I built them in my bedroom as a teenager when I was into model building. The first is a sailboat that I built in similar fashion to how you would build a full-size boat, around a frame. Its mostly made of balsa but the hull is...
  11. A Wind Vane for Ella

    Ella is our sailboat, a 12 foot long hard chine skiff from the "Summer Breeze" plans that we built this spring. Ella has a "lug rig" sail, which is a setup that allows sailing fairly close to the wind, requires very little hardware, no complicated boom hinges, a lot of sail area for a fairly...
  12. Sailboat handrails

    My old sailboat needed new cabin-top handrails so I made these last winter. I wanted handrails beefy enough that they would hold under the weight of an adult man hanging from them in storm conditions. That meant both that the wood needed to be thick enough to withstand the strain and also that...
  13. Curved Bed Headboard with Relief Carvings

    Seeing Bill Judt's project reminded me of this Headboard I made at our Lake Cabin. The sailboat in the middle is from a pattern in one of his books. The other two carvings are created from newspaper clippings. I started out with a piece of 1" X 12" Pine. I sawed the curve close to the...

  15. Spindrift 12 sailboat

    The plan set comes from B&B in N.Carolina. This boat was built from the lofting to the final fit out, only buying the sails made elsewhere. This is my 6th boat built from scratch. It took about 2 years, most of the work being 3 months last year. It is a stitch & glue design, using Okume marine...

    These are two little cats that I built in the early 80's. Catspaw was my own boat for several years and Sylvester was built for a client. Her second owner was Will Millar, lead singer of the Irish Rovers, who wrote about her in his book "Messing About in Boats" and which I last saw at the...
  18. Sailboat's traveller block

    Hey guys Last summer while in a patch of rough weather, I accidentally gybe badly. So badly in fact that my mainsheet traveller had it; 32 years of service was enough it seems. While looking for options to replace it, I quickly realize that anything that you can buy stock today needed to be...
