Boat Frame

Boat Frame
Putney, Vermont.

I'm growing this boat frame upside down, defining the keel, ribs and gunnel. I am using four apple trees in this project and five crab apple trees in another. I would like to try Sycamore as soon as possible. This is definitely a piece that will be harvested in the sense that I see it as reaching a particular size and I want to see it as an artifact.

Some day it will be harvested, skinned and floated down the river!
