A very precise work done by Karl. I am wondering how those beams notches are made. I assume a mill machine where used?
Such notches are usually done by hand with very sharp chisels and not milling machine, also because you have to prepare the other part of the connection also, at the lower deck clamps - father and mother have to fit well :cool:

Today I can show the lower level or floor of the powder magazine which was located between mizzen and main mast.
You can find the location at the following longitudinal section of the ship, marked with the red circle

2015-07-07-07-56-43-Gü-1.jpg


The details of the powder room were constructed (designed) based on a publication showing a contemporary model with all shelves, doors etc
For comparison you can find already some elements of the shelves....

This is the lower level / floor of the magazin, which will be installed in the hold

On the backside wall you can see the cabinet or oriel with glass windows in which from outside the lamps were given.
In this way the dangerous fire was separated from the explosive powder

Here the backside wall with the different doors and openings - this access was from the bread-room

Many Thanks for the interest ..... to be continued ......

In order to understand the following photos in future posts it is the best to show a longitudinal cross section of the inboard details of the Printz Friderich

The hold with its two levels

the wood is sold as "Swiss pearwood", but it has in fact nothing to do with pears and apples, it is a kind of rowantrees (Elsbeere, sorbus torminalis)
