Not sure where the inspiration came for this one, Just kind of felt like making a boat.

Shaped the pine hull with a Jack Plane tidied it up with smoothing plane and sandpaper.

Took to the mast and boom with a concave spoke shave,

Hardwood superstructure was American Ash and nailed to the Hull with Brass Flat head nails.

Drilled holes through the boom and mast in order to sew the hand sewed sail on.

Coat of decking oil to finish.

Oh, and she floats.

My first thought was…”that would be fun to play with in the pool!”
Nicely done!

Love it. That could be a cool first project for the kids to make. We used to make simple boats with rubber band powered paddle wheels in the Cub Scouts.

Thank you, yes it was a bit of fun , just lazily started shaping a piece of pine into a boat hull shape. It now sits on our bar as an ornament
