Dave's Model Ships - Home Page

Welcome to my growing collection of wooden crafted model ships.

Soon after my retirement in 2007, my wife and I moved back to our home town in North Carolina.  My passion for woodworking led me to discover the art of creating wooden ship models.  This blog site was originally created for the purpose of sharing my creations with my children and grand children living in Louisiana and Texas.

The following links are arranged in chronological order as they were built.
To visit any of my model ship build logs, click on the TEXT link to the right of the icon pic below.

Each project has more than one page.  
Use the "Older Posts" link in the lower right corner of each page to move from page to page.
