I love your process on the top, Karl.  First rate - and beautifully executed.  Also, I may have commented on this in the past, but I love the rich nutty brown color of the wood.  What species are you using and what finish?  thanks,

Hello Ed.

 

1. Wood type:  Elsbeere from Germany , unprocessed state

2. processed with the thickness planer

3. primed with quick sanding sealer

4. sanding with steel wool

5. rubbed into with furniture wax,

    rub off excess wax with a soft cloth

  

Point 3 - 5 , only after the wood bonding !!!!

Elsbeere from Germany: pearwood from Germany, if I remember correctly.

 

Hello Gaetan.

 

This is not exactly true.

Pear-wood and Elsberry are two different species of wood.

Elsberry is in Germany also Swiss-pear tree named.

Thank you, Karl, for the excellent explanation.  The process is very similar to what I do using Swiss pear, but I do not use sealer before the wax.  If the sealer is water based - and therefore probably acrylic - it will add no color.  If it is, for example, shellac based it will add some yellow to the color, as will most natural waxes.  The sanding sealer may account for some of the silky smooth surfaces in your work.  A very good method.  Regardless, your results are quite beautiful.  Thanks, again for taking the time to explain - and for the pictures.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
