Pine sailing detail

Latest work made for the Kawerau wood skills competition next weekend
Category Pine
The Hull is 600mm long turned on two centres to form the hull shape and keel .Then turned on a slide with 13 centres to form the ribs with a Koru design then branded inside .Internally was sprayed with an airbrush so when you move around the piece the colours change.The sails and hull were sprayed with lacquer
The sails were turned to 2 mm as a big platter then cut up .Two platters were required so the grain became horizontal.
The mast was turned and then steam bent so the vessel looks like it is under sail .A rebate was first cut into the mast so the sail fitted into the slot .
The stand was turned from acrylic then cut in half to form the cradle
