This is a wooden boat that I made for Maddox, my 2 year old nephew. (S.S. Maddie) It is made out of Maple and Mahogany. I used a shellac finish. Enjoy!

Nice looking little boat. I’m sure your son will enjoy playing with it, especially since it was made by his dad!

Hey Woodbridge… Unless he lives in Kentucky I’m pretty sure it’s not his son.
Seriously, I love folk art toys. GREAT!

Cool toy boat! Like the stout design, looks really sturdy. He’ll get loads of fun with it.
