Frank – Very nice! It is great to see a project in teak. I liked the photo of the glue-up.

this is beautiful… oh to have a wood bannister… sigh..

oh right, I do have a wooden railing. When we bought the house it was painted white.. I wanted wood. So I spent hours and hours sanding and got the front post and about 4 spindles sanded.. Phew.
Then my Mom moved in and she painted the railing white.
It’s still white.

Well, maybe teak is native to Holland, they’ll use it everywhere to stand up to the occasional flood and the light from all the pictures people will be taking of it!

First of all thanks for the great comments, I really like the reactions I get.
Second, some of you say its out of you’re skill level, thats nonsence.
I myself am (only) 20 yearsof age and am in myh 4th year at Royal Huisman Shipyard B.V.
Shore I make a living in woodworking and do this every day, but its not that hard at all, just take it step by step.
And most importend:...... take your time! never rush it.
I am blessed and spoiled by the fact that I work at Royal Huisman Shipyard B.V as a carpenter so I have one of the world’s most advanced tools and machines at my disposal.

Please don’t envy me…... ; )

And the wood and materials I use are either cut-offs or trow-aways, Royal Huisman Shipyard B.V is one of if not the best luxory shipyards in the world so an little cross-grain or any other inperfection is discarted, and so there’s alot for us to make beautiful projects out of.

I used epoxy for fixing up most of the railing, because I really wanted strong join everywhere.

For more info on what I do for a living check out http://www.royalhuisman.nl/
Go ove to the gallary of yachts section and check out the interior on these beauties, I myself am astonishes every singel time a yacht is launched.
Its gives us at the yard a real satisfied and proud feeling, to be a part of something so beautiful.

Frank on one of their test rides to the US. Fill up the hold with discarded materials and I’ll meet you at any USA port to take it off your hands.
