Hey gang, Shane here

As many of you know, Baileigh Industrial is now a paid sponsor here on the site. We will be having all kinds of fun with givaways, contests, woodworker of the week, customer spotlights and all sorts of fun stuff. Since introducing ourselves here on the site we have been bombarded with requests for information, woodworking questions, machinery questions, specs, quotes and catalog requests.

Aaron Cerkas is my buddy that will be helping us out on the forum. He has an extensive background in high end woodworking. He will chime in here with an introduction of his own. If you have any question on working with rare wood, how a certain machine works, how does this machine compare to another or just woodworking tips and tricks, just respond to this thread or shoot him a PM.

Lets all give Aaron a warm welcome to lumberjocks!

Thanks guys!

Thanks Shane! Just a little about myself: I have been in the woodworking field my entire career; spanning over 20 years. I recently worked for a well known yacht builder, Burger Boat, eventually becomming the asst. millwork manager. Previous to that I did custom cabinetry in the residential and commercial field for over a decade. I have dealt with some of the rarest woods on the planet and have been recognized as a true artisan by many in this industry. I welcome any questions and/or tips and tricks as learning in the woodworking industry is never-ending!! I look forward to communicating and learning with you all and will help with anything as needed.
Thank You!

Hi Guys, This is one of the yachts I coordinated and worked on at Burger Boat. It is called Sycara and was a replicated late 1800’s vessel. The main level’s wall panels consisted of no less than -7- different wood species along with most of the furniture. Madrone burl, paduk, ebony, anigre, along with some mahogany was used extensively throughout the yacht. We fabricated everything in our millwork facility including all the radius pieces and panels (vacuum bagging) along with all the inlays; either by hand or CNC.

This is the VIP stateroom which ended up being one of the nicest room in the yacht. All the furniture we made was done without any mechanical fasteners (nails, screws, etc.). All our glueing techniques had to be tested as glueing the different species together became quite the challenge. If you would like to know some of the techniques used to accomplish these challenges, please reply to this thread. I’m here to share and help!!

Thanks Aaron, cool name by the way, it’s mine as well. As for the free tablesaw I didn’t want to actually put forth an effort to get one, I just wanted you to send me one out of the kindness of your heart! I guess I’ll have to get one the old fashioned way, find someone to sucker into buying me one! Welcome by the way!

“Welcome Aaron. My question is How do they get the runabout off the rear deck? I dont see any sort of crane”

If you look really close, there is a crane folded down right behind the boat in question. It folds out to “pick” the boat to load it into the water. Good question! Lots or creative ingenuity into fabricating this furniture. Amazing talented guys who put their life into these boats!

That is a beautiful boat, is the hull glass or the entire boat (yacht, ship?) wood? Funny you haven’t got any questions about machines yet (except from myself of course) but you will! I saw one of your saws here and was impressed, I believe Sandra posted a couple videos of her new one (you should give her a rebate for representing your saws so wonderfully!) and it really is a nice looking machine!

Hi Aaron,

What is the height of your jointer tables? Your website does not have that measurement. It is an important measurement to woodworkers who use wheelchairs.

Thanks,
Greg

I figured the back roof deck would just pivot down and the boat would slide off into the water :) lol
