  • Some sailing ships for my bathroom

    Ones of the things.I start noticing with this lockdown is that some rooms in my house have all the wall decorations, pictures, ornaments they can handle while.others barely have anything on their wall. Our guest bathroom is one of those barren surfaces and so I dived into my hobby room library and came up.with a series of segmentation sailing ships.

    I ended up selecting four round plaques I copied onto a sheet of 6 inch wide pinewood. Yesterday evening I finished the first boat.
    image_75713.jpg I'll probably have the other three by next weekend. Until then, here are some pictures allready.

    Ps, the designs as copied onto the wood. I use 1/2 in. poplar with a #5 universal blade. On this one, the rim and the boat hull and masts are cut out at a slight bevel to make them come out, but my last boat will just have the rim cut at bevel and use that 'tension' to squeeze the inner parts together as I cut and sand them and glue them at different heights.to give the overall plaque some volume.

      Those are interesting! I particularly like where the wood grain runs across...with the horizon.

        Oops, never thought of using the grain to show horizon lines. To be true to I just wanted the pattern on the wood. I will remember that for the next time though thanks

          Update: at he end of the long weekend, I got three of the four plaques finished and the fourth one half done editor_20200908_202600.jpgeditor_20200908_202436.jpg I also got better at figuring out how to best cut the pieces and how to best glue them. Right now, I am using a #5 scroll blade at an angle to cut out the huls and masts an then a fine #2 blade straight down to cut.up the hull and sails, sand the pieces and then glue them together again.
          editor_20200908_205052.jpgStill have a lot to learn though..

          God thing because I have about an other dozen plans on my computer waiting to be tried out

            That is one of the reason I do not not like to use painters tape. I trim most of the excess paper outside of the pattern so I can get the correct grain orientation.

              These are coming out great.

                Update: I just realized I never posted any pictures of the finished fourth ship. I finished it about 6 weeks ago and have since tried a series of different techniques with some other illustrations from the same book. I'll post about that in a different thread. In the meantime, here is the last of my 'Ships of Asia's cycle....
