Bowls, Boats, and Baby!

Happy Monday everyone!

We hope you all had a wonderful holiday with family and friends and a relaxing weekend that followed. Things here at the shop have been in full swing! From cranking out several new bowls of various elegant forms and figures, to finishing up a uniquely stunning hall table, and preparing for some boat restorations, it is off to a nice winter season. We are also thrilled to announce that the newest member of our family has arrived! Our daughter Julianne was born on November 1st. Maybe we have a future woodworker in the making?

Shearwater Sport Kayak Build

Hey guys,

Its been awhile! It has been a very busy time these past few months for me. I’ve had to move, and I am still working on getting a house so I can get my shop set up (Foreclosures take awhile). Anyhow, even without my shop, I’ve been able to do some woodworking.

I’ve finished the construction of a 14′ 6″ kayak which was built from a kit that I purchased from CLC boats. The kit contained everything needed to build the boat, all that was left was assembling it. It took me a few months to finish it due to being very busy, but in the end, it was very much worth it and it turned out beautiful. Below, you’ll see a time lapse video of the boat being built from start to finish in just 5 minutes. The video consists of close to 8,000 photos that were taken in 30 second intervals. When the math is done, that means roughly 72 hours to build the boat which counts some time when I wasn’t recording. Enjoy the video!
