I'm not sure if this is the right place?
Anyway, eventually I want to make something big in wood from Nelson's navy, (I've just finished Patrick O'Briens 'aubrey' series, and want a model to suit) but need a simpler start, to guage the space, tools and skills needed. I would like to end up with something decent tho, maybe a small brig or cutter? So can anyone give me pointers where to start, what to look for, makes to aim at etc?
Thanks
John.
