Ok here is my second go at the sail boat but this time made out of 33mm thick GOLDEN IROKO.
Managed to get a bit more definition with this one,stands around 9” high and finnished with Danish oil & beeswax. The angle are quite tricky getting both concave and convex curves right in the sails.
Thanks for checking it out:: BazzA.

Thanks for taking the time to comment on my Sail Boat. I was asked if I could carve something like this and I said no way, But after thinking about it for a week I thought lets give it a go, and this was my 2nd attempt which was done Freehand – no pattern I just cut the outline with my scrollsaw, infact I started on my bandsaw but the blade jumped off the wheels so I continued with the scrollsaw, drilled the two holes and then cut all the curves with a mix of small drum sanders and a detail sander till I was happy it was defined enough. So there you have it – Golden Iroko Sail Boat.

Must have been sleeping to have missed this one (and previous)! I like the grain direction on the first sailboat Bazz-gives it a sense of movement. This one has a little more definition to it and is, IMO, better. Good for you on tackling a project you didn’t think you could do…and doing it! Thanks for sharing.
