A weekend project from the most recent issue of Wood Magazine – this Iowa Class Battleship. I added a layer of walnut to the hull to show off the waterline and also added a flag. As a retired Navy Chief, this is a great project. This ship measures 3 feet long by 7 inches wide and weighs just over 12 pounds. The hull is cherry and walnut and the superstructure and gun mounts are cherry and maple. Adopted some new skills in building this one.
Finished in Watco Natural Danish Oil and Satin Poly.
