Max’s Pirate Ship

When my daughter told me the theme for my grandson’s first birthday would be Pirates I knew right away I wanted to make a ship. I checked all of my wood sources for a pattern in scroll work or Intarsia and could not find anything. So I searched pictures of pirate ships and found one I was inspired by.

When I debuted the ship at the party, I received many compliments. Someone asked me how I curved the wood for the sails and I told them they were carved not bent. I have included a picture of the ship that inspired the design. I also made a round cupcake stand with a crows nest on top with a Lego pirate standing in it. I enjoy making things for family and friends and have yet to make something to sell.
