Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

Nice job on restoring the ports (pg 76 #760)! Something I would do and as a matter of fact am keeping my eye open for restorable brass or bronze ports for mine... but mine are much bigger and rectangular... will see what luck I have finding any.

Wow that is excellent! While I can do most any kind of fabrication (wood, metal, or fiberglass)... I can NOT do art. That is a different kind of talent. Nice job! It really adds a touch of class to the woodwork!

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

On further thought on the marquetry .... I just need to find an artist to draw up the art shapes... then I can do the actual construction of it.... hummm... its got ME thinking!

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

With so many boats on the market, selling becomes rather difficult. But if Ryan ever wants to sell his boat, it now stands apart from most others. Beautiful job!

So who else googled marquetry today? I'd never heard of it before. Great work Ryan.
