My New project is the St Caterina. It is a Mediterranean fishing vessel. Plans from Ancre. I started it since October and is well advance so far.



  1. I decided this time to go after a old fashion diorama
  2. New tech to aging wood (At least for me)
  3. New tech for nails (Also at least for me)

Aging.....

Once the planking is done I proceeded applying danish oil......

Then with a drill wire brush I went to mark the wood as it was a real weathering or attrition.....

Then..... with cement grout (not that liquid) I proceeded to “paint” the hull. Wait until it is almost dry. Make sure that the grout is going to all the scratches you made with the wire brush

The nailing has been done with sewing pins.

To the main hull, I cut them. Flat them with a sander belt and blue them. Also I decided to tape the hull in order to protect it. As a drill bit I used one of those pins, it worked really well, and the hole was perfect to ensure the pins.

MORE THAN 1000 PINS WERE NEEDED!!

Today I’ll show you the process I used to build the benches.

First, I cut the templates

With the belt sander and router, I finished all of them but the middle one, which has this middle circle, where the mast will located

For this particular bench, in order to make sure the half circle will be perfect, I used doble side tape, I taped a piece of wood (with the same thickness) beside it.....

I drilled the hole.....
