Is this the future of modern wooden boat building? In this video I am cutting the parts for the first frame, assembling them on the frame construction table and then trialling a system that I have never seen done before!

I return the frame to the CNC machine and 3D carve it in a two sided operation that will pre cut all the bevels and notches within the frame, massively speeding up the rate at which I will be able to assemble this boat down the line.

I like to think that this could be how wooden boat building might look in the future, perhaps this is a system that will allow more companies to begin integrating wooden boat building in a financially viable way and reduce the amount of horrible fibreglass boats that are being built!

But, it’s not just available commercially, as home boat building still remains very much at the heart of what I do, I am making these plans available to buy so that you can build this at home as well if you want! Check out the links below to find the plans.
