Full Triton question - Wood list?

Recommended Posts

I haven't heard of one, actually. If you want to real authentic I've read that the British used elm and oak a lot. I have no idea if those woods would be a good fit for model building because of the coarseness of their grain structure. I know a lot of folks use fruit woods like cherry, apple, and pear. I just went with what I like. For my build, here's what I'm using...


Mahogany (main structure ie keel, framing, beams, rooms, etc.)

Walnut (anything I want to stand out, so far the false keel, and probably will use it for doors, cannon trucks, rigging blocks, and other deck furniture stuff)

Ebony (whales and window frames)

Maple (deck planking)

Haven't figured out the rest


Good luck...
