Noah's Ark

Stacks Image 160
Here is my version of the Ark and animals.This project was REALLY labor intensive. The kids at Holy Cross really enjoy it.

    The core of the ark is simple pine. The planks on the hull and deck are made from White Oak. Brass escutcheon pins give it a realistic look of the ship builders of old. The cabin is Ash topped with a Walnut roof. A few coats of lacquer make it ready for little hands.
    Below is our version of the Ark. It is 18 3/4” long and 8 1/8” wide at its beam.

    The hull is made from three pieces 3/4” Baltic Birch sheet stock and the gunnel is a single piece of
wide Walnut. The cabin is Alder with a Maple top.
