I am ex-navy and I do appreciate it… I also grew up with a Mater Chief Boatswains Mate for a father…. he would have loved this.

Thanks Shipmate!

are the knots carved into the board? looks pretty good, you must have been either QM or BM.
I was AQF, back many years ago, back when I had hair, I think that is what they call that stuff on top of your head. good looking board.

Dude, very freaking cool! I’m most of the way through making two of them. I’m using some nautical charts that have hand-drawn illustrations on them that I found off of ebay:

Illustrated Nautical Chart

I contacted the guy that does the charts and asked if he wanted to partner up. I’d do the knots and the frames, and he would do the background. These high-end knot boards get big bucks!

Been in the navy, used many knots hiking and camping, and as a truck driver and driver for a shipyard, I can appreciate the art of the knot. A very cool display! What a great collectible.

I was a 3rd class Boatswain’s Mate at the end of a 4 year Kiddie cruise. I have done a lot of the work you show there. It’s so long ago that I can’t even remember the names of the different things or how I made them. This brings back a lot of good memories. Thanks for the post.
