« Part 6: Cutting Plugs Part 7 of Baby Tender series Part 8: More or less done »

I finished up working on the rockers and got them attached last night. The rockers and bottom are all finished in shellac so I don’t have to turn it over again (I hope). There is still quite a bit to do but at least it looks like a boat now. Here are some pics.

Is that sweeet or what!! You guys must stop posting pics of boats(any sort) on this site. I built boats for a living at one point in my life and you know how it is with that bug. If this keeps up, I am gonna have to build another one! Looking forward to more pics.

I’m jealous I’d love to spend some time building boats, I’m obsessed with the Wooden Boat Magazine and all the projects. I just don’t have the time or space to get serious about a large project.

I can’t say it was my idea. I picked the plans up for Jordan Wooden Boats. It has been a fun project though.

Thanks for the feedback.
