He is also learning a wooden boat building craft. He is self taught, ridiculously talented and humble about his work. While I grew baby over the past 40 weeks Steve has been in the workshop building not ONE but TWO wooden boats!
Steve is racing the baby's arrival to finish up his 12ft Sailing dingy - The Shearwater.
This is the mould the boat is built on top of.
Strips of Okoume Plywood & Oak will be applied.
Near completion this picture was taken about 2 weeks ago.
It's sea worthy - just requires the finishing, rigging and sailors!
Last Fall Baby P's Daddy told me he was going to build the P a cradle shaped like a boat...and then he went out into the workshop and began - just like that!
This is the first post about the Pram.
And here is the final product ... it will have a rocking devise or swinging apparatus built - baby Daddy is waiting for his Dad to arrive to help him with this project. A little bonding time required to pre-pare' for fatherhood.
Priming the Pram in the living room...it was too cold outside!
Interior paint applied to the Pram in the Yoga Studio - still too cold outside to cure!
Floor boards installed!
The paint is a traditional colour for a wooden boat - in fact the blue is left over paint from when Steve built "Little Blue" his first wooden boat. I am sentimental about the first boat.
This Pram is also "sea worthy" ... But don't think for a second it's leaving the house!
Here it is with the bassinet mattress in it.
Next time I post a picture of the Pram it should have a soundly sleeping little P in it.
