John: Looks terrific. Looks nice and smooth and shiny. What did you apply for a finish? What wood did you use?

The design lends itself to a 'rocking horse' style toy if the plans were scaled up and modified so a small child could ride or rock in it. Rod

hi Udie
For the sides and bottom I used Sweet Chestnut, the deck was steamed beech, American black walnut for front and back, top deck is European cherry, sails are birch faced plywood whilst the cannons are a mix of oak and mahogany. the finish I used was Cynthia's home made paste wax, I find it really enhances the woods I use. I buy all my timber as sawn boards then resaw and mill to size as required as needed

John (johnkc) That is quite a collection of woods and explains why I was unable to put my finger on most of them. Looks like Cynthia's non-toxic bee's wax is the ticket, your project shows very well. TKX for posting.
