Cut some scraps off cabinet lumber into 3/16” strips,and made a few little 16” rowboats. Born and raised on the Chesapeake Bay.I had a rowboat before I got my first bicycle….Guess I was dreaming about my childhood…..

Those are a really neat way to use up scrap wood. Do you use a jig for putting these together?

Oh my goodness!! You’re a boat builder too? These look super. Great detail work. I’m sure it was very satisfying work. Thanks for sharing.

Very cool. +1 for being raised on the Chesapeake, beautiful waters despite some misconceptions.

Nothing wrong with dreaming of the good times from childhood. Great looking boats!

Did you use a pattern?

Those are so cool! Like the colors and considering they are made from wood scraps, it’s very smart and nice.

I can see I’m not the only one hankering to make these! Dittos on the wish for some kind of pattern.

Great little models. I’d love to have one sitting on my display cabs next to my cardstock BYYB boats.

Thanks a bunch,Glad you all like them.I made a couple, and painted them the colors that I remember from childhood.And scuffed them up to make them look used.A couple are Yellow pine with Teak or Mahogany seats and rubrail.I build them from scratch,but I did make a jig to keep them shaped.All glue and clamped construction.No pattern,but I’ll take some photos of the jig and Pre fabricated the transom…
