Louvered Doors

I haven’t posted anything in a while. It’s not that I haven’t been busy, just hasn’t been woodworking projects suitable for project posting. I’ve been spending a lot of time bringing my new 1984 sailboat up to my standards and most of it has been either non-woodworking or boring woodworking.
Anyway I hate drop boards when I’m out sailing and much prefer doors so I made these to suit the boat and compliment the cockpit grate I did last summer. They are solid Teak which means only slightly more valuable than solid gold but since I’ve ruined it by making them fit only my boat, I think I’m pretty safe leaving them in sight. :-)

Tools: hand tools table saw

If God wanted us to have fiberglass boats he would have given us fiberglass trees.

Nicely done, Captain! ;-)

That’s some pretty impressive handwork! I would have cheated and routed those out, but then that’s because I’m pretty bad with hand tools. Good to see you’re at least enjoying a little woodworking. Nice addition to your boat.
