The Vessel for the Mystic Journey

I finished the boat. Or at least the model — 65 inches long. Crafted of 1/8″ birch plywood and basswood and glue. I had intended to cover it. I tried several tests with heat-shrink dacron. I would have had to construct the vessel differently to allow that to work. Then I thought of veneer. Either large pieces or thin strips. I abandoned that too. As it happened the more I looked at the skeleton structure of the vessel the more liked it.

I took photos all the way through construction. I want to make a slide show of that, quickly showing the fabrication.
