What a brilliant idea -removable elements. At first, as most of us, I was looking at the images and didn't read comments. I thought it would be nice to make it a removable element for educational purposes. Many thanks for this excursion into the history, and not to mention a precision build. Also, I like the visible contrast between the light wood and the main timber. What kind of timber is lighter wood?It was very helpful, that the element is removable, so the walls and interieur can be finished outside of the hull
Much appreciated for your prompt answer. We have a similar color timber Holly timber. It is nearly white color and will not have visible grain, it is not as hard as boxwood.The lighter wood is in German "Pfaffenhütchen" or "Spindelstrauch" (the small red fruits look like the biretta of catholic clergymen): Evonymus europaea.
It is a very tough wood with nearly invisible fine grain, a little softer than boxwood (and therefore easy to glue) but of nearly the same light yellow colour. I use it for scraping the mouldings and making very thin strips (see page 1). I used it in the powder room for making some more contrast in the darkness of the hold.
In former times they made detailed wood turned pieces and marquetry from it.
I have got my logs from a friend who has cleaned up his garden many years ago. I think it's not available in the timber trade.
Many thanks for the compliments, but it is just the work of ten fingers and some tools.It is one of the BEST work I have ever seen, apart from 1-2 Frech and 2 Rissian builders. To me as Danish Born and have built the Sistership Norske Love (from Kit)I am very proud of this build. It is like a Rubens, Van Gock work, far out of reach from most. WELL DONE
