Dec Update 64 Gun French Galleon

I have now started on the cannons and the gun carriages, have just realised how small they are. Finally started to revamp my new work station (ship yard). There are 64 Cannon with 48 visible and 16 dummy barrels. So there are 96 carriages sides and 192 wheels. 48 complete cannons and 16 dummy's are a rather large task.
 The first of the gun carriage sides cut from Rhodesian Teak, 1 of 96 hip hip frikken hooray only 95 to go.

A cannon in the Lathe, the stock is a 6mm hard wood dowel

A new beginning and an on going task of working and building a new work station still a lot of work to be done. The post form counter top will go on next and drawers to be assembled.
