Unique Holiday gift idea…

For the boat enthusiast who has everything…
These decorative boat props are made entirely of wood, with inlay on the curved blades.
They are made either of solid purpleheart or solid curly mahogany.
You can get the inlay in a ‘star spangled’ design or a ‘pirate’ design.
They are 9.5 inches in diameter and are ready to hang on a wall or set on a surface.
They are holiday priced at only $75.
While everyone else is getting boring presents at the mall, you can suprise them with a unique hand-made work of art that can’t be found in any store.

Here I am starting to cut the first pieces of the boat…

Here I have more of the nameplate done…

Here all of the nameplate is done. A lot of small parts to get the dark edge on the sides of each part of the nameplate…

This might be my next project…

I think I will tackle this picture next…
I saw it on the Woodyboater.com website and thought it was an elegant shot.
I asked Matt Smith (the photographer, owner of the boat and the owner of woodyboater website) if I could have permission to recreate it in marquetry.
He agreed, so I’m evaluating how I’m going to approach it.
Stay tuned…
