Mayflower by BobTheBuilder - Model Shipways

Recommended Posts

Hi Drake,

I was going to make a adjustable jig for plank bending that I saw in one of my model shipbuilding books, however, I found this one for $22 at MicroMark, here's the link:


I used a steamer to bend the plank, it's really a nifty tool! So far I've only used it for the rabbit at the start of the Mayflower but I look forward to doing the planks with it because you can bend five or six planks at the same time!

Well, a lot as happened since I last contributed to my builder blog.

I've had to move from my home in Northern California to Northern Virginia outside Washington DC to take care my 90+ year-old parents. So I brought my Mayflower kit and all my tools with me and set up shop here in my parents home in the basement.
