Day 602 – Nameplates

Burning the name into a piece of hardwood with the laser cutter.  It is interesting to watch the laser cutter moving so accurately.



  1. It’s been a great experience reading over your journal. I am trying to find the courage to start my own boatbuilding project, also glued lapstrake. Still trying to decided on an Oughtred design – Penny Fee, or Walter Simmons’ Newfoundland trap skiff. In any case I found your writing and photos very helpful. Take care, Dennis

      Thank you for the kind words. I would encourage you to start on your project, it is a great experience that you learn from as you go along.
      All the best

  2. Congratulations. She´s absolutely awesome.
    I´m sure that now that you have finished her, that your are happy that you did build her yourself.
