Learn the Ins and Outs of Building Lapstrake, Carvel, Stitch-and-Glue, Strip-Planked, and Other Wooden Boats
Whether you are contemplating your first-ever boatbuilding project or trying to decide what design you'd like to build next, Greg Rössel can help. Here's just a glimpse of what's inside this complete overview of wooden boatbuilding:
Greg Rössel writes with warmth, wit, and an engaging style. The Boatbuilder's Apprentice is a must guide for anyone planning or even dreaming about building a wooden boat.
“Greg Rössel is a Renaissance man. While there are many talented boatbuilders in the world, only a handful are also good teachers. Even fewer can write or illustrate effectively. Yet this author is highly skilled in each of these areas. . . . The Boatbuilder's Apprentice is a successful blend of technique and wisdom, and is, I believe, destined to become a classic.”-Karen Wales, WoodenBoat Review

A truly handy text for those of us embarked upon the voyage of amateur boat building. Full of useful tips including jigs, even one to increase the sole length of a handplane to prepare timber for scarf joints. 5stars Read full review
For (at least) the novice, this book is much more readable than H. Chapelle's classic book on boatbuilding. In addition, it is much more relavent to the modern builder. I find that I can actually apply the instructional information to my current projects.
