Hello friends 

In almost all my ships, I made the carvings from pear wood with a dental machine (K11). 
This photo shows the decorations of the Royal Caroline on the side walls.

The ornaments were milled from 2.5mm thick wood. The book was used as a template  "Anatomy of the Ships", "The Royal Yacht Caroline 1749" of Sergio Bellabarba & Giorgio Osculati.

Practice creates masters!!!!


Greetings Hubert

Why do you prefer pearwood?

Pearwood is one of the ideal woods to carve. It has a low price, is easy to get and has a very nice color. For me the ideal wood. I love it.

I have no pictures of the process  from the start . Sorry!

Here is an example of my work. The Tudor Rose for my Sovereign of the Seas with the template and the tools for making it.

I mixed my gold color from 2 different gold colors in a ratio of 75% (Müller) to 25% (Lukas). 
For me it looks so good.
