Here is a photo log of Danmark.
It was given to me as a project started by a gentleman who passed away.
I decided to complete it as there are too many unfinished projects left this way.
It was basically roughly planked hull and a box of bits.
The first pic is well into my attempt of bashing it into shape.
I was up to the point of starting the rigging when I fell of the roof of my house, breaking my arm and fracturing my back.
So back to the computer for a while producing rigging plans.
I will be back into it shortly.

Hello Allan
Very nice indeed
I did build the Danmark when I was a kid (quite a while ago ;))
She was in a pretty bad shape after several moves and I tried to save her.
Definitely not as nice as yours
I'd be interested in following your log

I have been making grating. This is a fine as I can get.
60mm dia x 0.6mm thick milling cutter
Starting with a piece of stock 40x40x4 cut shallow grooves cross grain .6mm deep across the entire piece.
Adjust the depth to 2mm and repeat with grain.
You then have a block with a lot of square bits sticking up.
Then cut strips .6x.6 and fill in the shallow grooves.
Run super glue over it.
When dry run it over the saw blade multiple times(2mm depth) and cut the back off it.20201207_171403-2aa.jpg
