Cutter Cheerful 1806 by Rustyj - FINISHED - 1:48 Scale


Recommended Posts

Hi Glenn,

 

Sorry for the delay but I had to first shake some cobwebs loose.

I took the lengths and pattern right from the plans. It's a four plank

shift and the plans show the joint locations. I marked the bulkheads

and got my plank lengths from there.

 

Hope this helps.

Hello Rusty!

Beautiful Cheerful build! I’ll be using your build log when I get to mine which is waiting on the shelf for me to gain more experience. I do have a question, what wood did you use for the deck and is there a finish on it? I just love the bleached look and I’d look to go that route on my build. Thank you for the info!

Rusty,

 

Thank you for the reply - much appreciated! Now the question is, where can you find holly? It seems to have all but vanished. Thoughts?

 

Before starting on Cheerful, I need to get at least 1 build under my belt, and that’s where Chuck’s Medway Longboat comes into play. More to come later.

You can get Holly from Gilmore Wood Company, but you need to mill it into the proper sizes yourself:
