Hi Tiz,

 

I am late to the show on this one!  Simply spectacular work.  I find that detailing the inside of the hull to be difficult at best.  You have accomplished it without flaw.  I love the detailed photos of your journey and will continue to follow along.  All the best, Gary

Tiz, I echo everyones comments to the max.  What is your process for obtaining such a high-quality finish on each individual piece?  Sandpaper, scrapper, both?  I welcome your elaborating on how you attack each piece and then your assembly process.  Your wood is of such high quality, do you pre-select and mill it yourself?  Looks like Swiss Pear, but better.  What type of finish are you using?

 

Thanks, Gary

I thank you for the compliments you have made to me.
As far as the finishing of the pieces is concerned, the use of abrasive paper 240, or even a scraper, depending on what I have to do, the pear tree I use is a tree that I saw many years ago, in my house, in Italy, for the moment, in the photos you see, the wood is still natural, but later I will use shellac or beeswax, I hope the translator has correctly translated these terms

Does it feel like you have changed wood?
From my point of view, I think you should keep the same wood in the whole boat. The monochrome contributes to the seriousness model.
It is only my opinion Tiziano.
Sorry if it is not like that.
