This is my latest – a cradle boat project I have completed for my newest grandchild. Built of Oak, Cherry and Okoume plywood, and finished with three coats of satin varnish. Intended as a rocking cradle, the boat can be converted to a rocking toy by changing the orientation of the rockers in installing a seat, footrest and hand-grab assembly.

Hi Eric good to have another boatbuilder on board. No pun intended. I’ve been a boatbuilder for 30 years and will be sharing what I know along with you. Hope you don’t mind if I chime in on your posts on occasion.

Hello Jim,, welcome aboard and thanks for you kind comment. I am a Newbie on this site myself of less than six months. I can’t remember now how I first came across the site, but it is a great source for ideas and a place to exchange information. No one knows it all, and there are always things you can learn for anyone else, no matter who they are or what they do. Fact.

I’ve found some very clever and artistic people on the site, including professionals who are generous in sharing their work and ideas. I try to participate too, as best as I can, and as I have time. Recently I started writing in a little blog about shop tips and general notions (http://lumberjocks.com/GnarlyErik/blog/33273) which has been well received. Quite a few others chime in with their own ideas and comments – including at least two shipwrights – all gratifying to me.
