Murray has a nice blog detailing his build of a fine looking little Ladybug.
To answer the question originally posed, “Can an accountant with virtually no woodworking experience build a boat?”, the answer is now YES!!!
I think anybody can build a boat if they take their time and get help when you run into the situations where you are unsure of how to proceed.
This project took longer than expected, mostly due to my inexperience….
I also want to point out a recent posting on the tools he used and his comments and insights on some of them.
