Traditional Woodworking Tours #8: Wooden Boat Builder

07-07-2014 03:16 PM by WoodAndShop | 0 comments »

In the above video I share my visit to the Vineyard Haven wooden boat workshop of Ted Box on the Massachusetts island of Martha’s Vineyard. In the video I mentioned that I read a book called “Wooden Boats” which informed me of Ted Box’s boat building. You can find the fascinating book at this link. If you want to learn more details about Ted’s history and his wooden boat building project, you can read more via this Vineyard Gazette newspaper link. Ted’s 70-foot scow schoon...

816 getting wet for the first time!...sort of:-(

05-05-2014 01:27 AM by Mark Shymanski | 6 comments »

Well my boat finally got wet but not quite the way I’d hope its first taste of water would be. :-). The upside is that things are melting (slowly) here so maybe by the May long weekend I can really see how it will float!

Maybe the beginning of a larger project #10: No progress but I found out about hull #500

07-21-2013 06:06 AM by Mark Shymanski | 4 comments »

The closest I’ve come to working on 816 is walking through the shop on the way to work. I did have a surprise the day after I registered my PDR in that the other Manitoban who has a PDR emailed me and introduced himself. Turns out we are only about an hour away from each other. Serendipitiously he was to do an interview that same day with a local radio station to try and stir up some interest in wooden boats. Apparently his hull (#500) is still serviceable and it sounds like he real...

Sunshine Yacht Tender Model #12: First planks, the garboards

03-11-2013 04:50 PM by kharder | 3 comments »

Now that the plank lines are set I need to glue on each plank starting in the middle of the boat and working down towards what will be the top edge, or sheer in boat-speak. Each plank will overlap the one below it which makes the shape of the planks very visible. If they are well shaped they plank lines create a beautiful flowing shadow lines and accentuate the curves of the hull. If they are off it starts to look goofy fast! The planks next to the keel are called garboards (no idea why) a...

12-10-2012 02:43 AM by deutschman | 10 comments »

Hello, My name is Jeremy (firm cyber hand shake). This is my first blog entry for my account here at LumberJocks. Short intro. Please excuse my spelling. Spelling has been a struggle for me my whole life.A bit about my self. I was born in Marburg Germany, but have lived the larger part of my life on the west coast of the USA. I love anything I can do with my hands. Pottery, glass work, automotive work, carpentry, cooking, brewing beer… you get the idea. I love to learn and share. I a...

This is the finished shot…you can see my other sail boat build in the back… This ...

Stevenson Projects Weekender Sailboat Build #17: Dry Fit #2 Pictures

09-11-2011 05:33 AM by Napaman | 18 comments »

Last week I shared the trials and tribulations of my transom attempt…which turned into a good thing…and I shared all the details there…but I did not post any pictures. I decided that I should take some pictures before I pull it apart and glue on the new transom…as I said in the last blog I am glad that I did another dry fit since the first dry fit the boat was not as far done…so with the parts closer to finished I have a much better idea of the prep steps and ...

This morning we officially “assembled two of the assemblies”...and it went well…everything pulled down nicely and I am really pleased… Since the dry f...

Stevenson Projects Weekender Sailboat Build #13: Dry Assembly

07-23-2011 05:56 AM by Napaman | 19 comments »

Today we took all the assemblies…and fit them together as a dry run…I made a long list of things I need to do before I glue all the pieces together in stages…the list is pretty long, but after we took all the assemblies down I knocked two items off the list… This was a good practice run…I learned some things about what I need to do …and now seeing all the parts together will allow me to move forward…and I now have a game plan… The first pi...

Stevenson Projects Weekender Sailboat Build #12: SAILBOAT DECK is done...finally an update...

07-08-2011 06:37 AM by Napaman | 20 comments »

Its crazy to think that my last boat blog was back in January…while winter break was incredibly productive the spring semester for Mr. D was pretty busy and stressful…the focus for sure was on the job…which as TEACHER OF THE YEAR FOR 2011 I guess I do take my job pretty seriously! Summer so far has kept me busy writing a grant and wrapping up school work…and its crazy to think August is around the corner… BUT the GOOD BOAT NEWS…TODAY we assembled̷...
