Events for March 4, 2018
The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum's Model Guild is offering a beginner's model boatbuilding workshop from 9am—5pm on March 3 and 4, with limited participation and advanced registration needed.
The weekend workshop includes instruction on carving a solid half-hull model of the historic Chesapeake Bay tugboat Delaware. This model is band-sawed from a two-tone wood block and carved to the rounded shape of the Delaware's hull. The cabin and pilot house are cut from the same pieces. The pieces are then shaped and sanded to a fine finish and then mounted on a baseboard to form a wall display piece.Find out more »
