Bill Taft - Boat building

Over the past few years, two of our program presenters have described their boat building experiences. Both showed the hull turnover as one of the memorable occasions of the building process. That hit home with Bill Taft, as he has turned over the completed hull -- a milestone in the building process -- five times. He will share those experiences in a slide presentation documenting the construction of two of the five sailboats he has built. Bill will also briefly discuss boat design, materials, and construction methods.

For his dazzling “Woodswimmer” video filmmaker Brett Foxwell, who goes by bfophoto, used a process he describes as “brutally tedious.” The results, though: Wow. What you’re seeing are cross-sectional scans of hardwood, burls, and branches sequenced in stop motion. It’s like his camera is moving through the wood.  CLICK HERE
