More Rhythmic Nailing

Various posts I've put up at Instagram and here on my blog with videos showing boatbuilders nailing have been popular. I was just sent a link to a boatbuilder I met last spring. His style is relaxed and subtle, but he too says this is essential to driving the nail when the risk of splitting the planking is high.

Enjoy this short video here.

This boatbuilder has invited me to come and help him build a boat in the early part of 2019. I blogged about him a bit here.

I am toying with the idea of developing this boatbuilding project into a workshop of some sort, allowing folks who are interested in participating in the building of a traditional Japanese boat. Drop me a line at if you are interested.
