Marquetry in motion. Sheer magic. I love it. Want one. Wish I could do it. Thinking about it

You guys are making me blush!

The truth is, Matt designed this boat. I just followed his directions(well mostly), and the dog gone thing went from flat pieces of plywood to a hull.
It was the profile lines of his second effort,(with the lowered rear deck) that set my head to reelin'. The profile lines are basically the same ones Matt already drew up. I just rounded off the peak.
