Hi Donnie

Good to see you back in the shipyard.

Brian and I both have Jim Byrnes Model Machine Drawplates.

They are excellent quality.

So, a dumb a question from me. Where do I get the bamboo from? Let me be a bit more clear on this. Where do I get the bamboo dowels that would be the size to start with. It would be obvious that I would not want to buy a pack of 4mm dowels. I would need to start out with something smaller is diameter right?

I have a Byrnes drawplate and have even used it with boxwood to create railings for staircases on my Sovereign of the Seas model. It is a quality tool.

Regards,

Ok, so not the best pictures in the world. These pics are of the wood naturally - doesn't have too much personality to it. But, I am not yet finished. The other pics are darker wood only because I can use water to simulate the effect of urethane satin.
..
I am not going to treenail it, but instead, I am going to resort to an old trick of just drilling holes and sanding to fill the holes with powder from the sanded wood. Then coat with Poly Urethane Clear Satin. Then go over it again.

The first image is a drawing I made that shows the planking pattern I used.

Donnie

Great to see you back in the Ship Yard .

I look forward to seeing more of your posts.

One thing I have learnt since taking up Model Ship Building about 4 years ago. You can meet very good friends in the hobby. There is always a member to give suggestion on how to go about a task on a Model Ship

Very nice planking. I'm interested in seeing the results of your tree nailing technique.. a huge time saver if it looks good. :)

It is really amazing the things people think of - that is pretty neat device. Ok, so, a while back, I tried using annealed steel wire and as I sanded the side of the planking, black steel dust was being embedded into the wood and really never got it out. However, I see that brass is being used. I might try a piece of brass on some scrap walnut.

Thanks
Donnie
