I have started a series of Walnut carvings that I am calling Navy Nuts. Each set of 3 will feature a different type of masted sailing vessel.
The ships are made out of:
Base – Walnut Shells
Deck – Bassword with carved ridges representing deck ribbing
Sails – Maple formed to represent full sais
Masts – Sanded toothpicks

As you can see they are very small but detailed. I hope you enjoy them as much as I had making them

Excellent idea. When I was a kid, my neighbor and I used to make something similar out of walnut shells. Filled each half with wax, stuck in a toothpick with a paper sail and…presto…instant boat. Not as nice as yours, of course, but they actually floated. I had forgotten all about those until I saw yours. Thanks for the memories.

So nice to have a large picture of your boat! Our poor eyesight wouldn’t allow us to appreciate it in person. Great details; amazing work!

I made one too many years ago, but not with that much detail, this one deserves a glass display case! But wait, 572 days in the making? :p
