Perhaps Holly as a white substitute for the officers’ quarters? I’m not sure how it will oxidize, over time, though.
What a joinery, man. I'm speechless.I have done the initial fabrication of the Rider frame.This is in African Red Padauk.The Monograph states that the full interior on this vessel was Red Occre bar the officers quarters,so the full interior will be Padauk bar the decks,which will be Pear.
The upper futtocks are not attached and will not be until much later.These penetrate the lower gun deck.The base has been sanded to the bevel of the floor timbers.
Final pics how the item in location,it will need setting up properly to scribe both sides to follow the hull interior minus the internal planks and strakes (3mm).I will leave a little meat though for final tweaking prior to fitting.

Marc Holly is a possibility,however there a other details in the officers quarters that can only be shown using the "hairy stick".I feel that that in order for this area to be cohesive in appearance,I am best painting all the interior fittings in the cabin unless they were natural timber on the real vessel.The use of colour in this area will hopefully draw the viewers eye to this area and it not be lost in a vast expanse of internal framing.Perhaps Holly as a white substitute for the officers’ quarters? I’m not sure how it will oxidize, over time, though.
Thanks Marc and yes it has calmed down although some blotches remain and may take a while to fade.Not down to the Padauk but needed to rule it out.Glad to see you back to work, Nigel! Has the skin irritation fully abated?
Yes I know what you mean Jim but it hasn't bothered me since.The allergic reaction was to Madagascan Ebony and my arms were covered in hives from generous amounts of dust from a mass cutting session.Touch wood (pardon the pun) I have not had a repeat episode...t is time switch to the black hornbeam, perhaps?
Yes I know I have been reading the webpagesNot all is rosy though,I have just opened the box to find it has had an impact on it's end cracking the belt cover.I have had Machine Mart on the phone and then emailed them pictures,they are talking about sending a replacement machine rather than just the cover.We shall see,currently NOT happyBe careful that can turn into a whole other hobby by itself. Mine got lengthened, digital readouts, quick change tool posts, grinder attachment etc. It's a great tool for hobby sized work, and beefy enough to turn steel for small jobs.
