Hi Ben - that's a real nice piece.
I especially like the slightly weather-beaten look of the ark. Is that done with burning the wood a little and then buffing it up, is it natural, or did you use a different technique? Also can you tell us what size it is please?

Some one is really going to like this project!

Curiously I'm also working on an ark at the moment based on a Philip Lowndes puzzle ark pattern which you can see here. When first saw this I thought the shape was interesting and it's not too dissimilar in general design to yours but I think kids would get more fun out of yours since they can move the animals around.

Hi all and thanks for the comments.

It took about 4-5 weeks working couple hours every night.

Jim - No wood burning. I used a grider to shape the hull and i think its just areas I didnt smooth out. I used a dark stain to get the old look of the wood.

Its pretty large and solid. I would guess it 12" long (or even longer)

I also purchased Philip's puzzle plans but havn't had the time to do it yet. One day I will.
