I know it’s not an actual “woodwork” But thought it was related , finished it two weeks ago. building a frame now JUST THOUGHT IT WAS AMAZING HOW THEY USED TO AND MAYBE STILL BUILD BOATS BY HAND LIKE THIS IN IRELAND , THE OLD GALWAY SCHOONERS ETC,,,... Will post photos soon of the standing tool chest I’ve been making . I really enjoy all of your projects on here too .. Find myself just browsing folks projects for an hour sometimes . Take care Wood People .. Patrick .

It looks like one of the murals from the thirties.

Glued an old busted up frame I had together , I think it looks cool. I think it fits with how rough I painted this one .. Soon I’m moving to the BRONX , yippie , my first wood shop !!!!!!!!!!! , Trying to find a place with a small garage. That’s pretty exciting for me living in nyc for the past 15 yrs. only one more month of saw dust all over my studio apt , in brooklyn , and all over girl friends clothes , hahahha , she just loves that.

That’s pretty tough man, I tried my hand at oil painting a little – not as good as you though. Post some more if you got ‘em. Nice little Hali BTW!
Thanks,

That’s a gorgeous painting. I love the boat building theme. I’ve always been a boat fan.
