Now you mentioned it, I looked it up now.

Nice pieces out there.

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

thanks for the compliments- my ego is appreciating the shine!

marquetry is really cool- i love the simplicity of it: only using the subtle differences in grain orientation or wood species to create a huge overall effect.

as far as art goes, i can't do it either: i traced a few images of sailboat photos (might be one of your boats), and tweaked it here and there to fit what i needed. basically tracing over the image i drew in pencil with an exacto knife with the wood underneath. finish the cut in the veneer. repeat: a few hundred times!

this guy does some really cool work!

especially the big boat he does for a friend, where you can follow the process he goes through: talk about a great friend to have!

PS Ryan, nice job! I put forward the motion that your work be removed from the low buck project thread, because your labor is worth many, many hundreds of dollars on that!

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

Heh, that would look pretty cool. I actually have 2 dinghies at the moment, still deciding what to do, one is a nice little Zodiac which motors fine and is stable, but not great for the mutt with the soft floor and doesn't row at all. The other is a little hardshell dingy, which rows nicely, is stupidly unstable but better for the mutt as he can't puncture it.
I guess I need a mix of both, whether that's a hard floor zodiac, or a fibreglass dingy with more flotation around it. A topic for a different thread I would think. Carry on

RyanL,

Truly beautiful work! Where do you get the thin wood from? I would love to try my hand at something like that but don't even know where to start..

How about a Walker Bay with the optional inflatable tube around it?

I have a couple of inherited pieces of Italian marquetry which include mother of pearl inlay. Incredible skill to make but I have never really cared for it. I find in most cases when I look at it I am admiring the skill of the craftsman rather than the beauty of the item.

That said, I have seen a number of boat tables with central inlays - compass roses and so forth - that are really something special. It is very easy for it to get overdone though, in which case it seems akin to the craftsman boasting or simply showing off.

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

I made a bilge pump using my rechargeable drill, a couple old pieces of garden hose, and an small "Drill Pump." The drill pump is self priming and cost about $6 - I already had the drill and hose laying around. I'll try to attach a picture of the pump, if successful you will see the stem on the back of the pump that the drill drives. This thing moves a lot of water fast and you can direct the water anywhere you put the outlet end of the hose.

Could also be used for a little washing up of the boat if desired.

When they say don't use it to pump oils, they mean it! I have personal experience in the matter.
