Made this as a newborn birthday gift for a friend of mine. Took me about thirty hours. Made to hang on a door or wall. Used a keyhole router bit in the back. Painted surface with flat black acrylic paint, then lightly sanded, then painted with oil paints.

That’s really cute, yeoldepirate! . . . nicely done! By the way, did you know that “ole sailors never die, they just get a little dinghy?”
