storage/staging for a build

Recommended Posts

Before I had a room to take over, I built on the kitchen table. I stored the model in a safe place (high shelf in den or one in our bedroom. My wood was in the box and tools in a tackle box. This worked well and served for most of my Bluenose build.

Current build: HMS Pegasus, English Pinnace (on hold)

Completed build: MS BluenoseSkippercraft

Before I started the masts and rigging I toted my Granado kit around the country camping. Everything fit into a large toolbox. I chose one that was more than 24" inside dimension since that was the length of all the wood pieces. The fittings I kept in a plastic Plano tackle box.  I worked on it from Florida to Montana to Prince Edward Island, Canada over several years.  However, once the masts went in it stayed in my workshop.  Too much danger of damage at that point.
