Wood, the basis of nautical carpentry
Whether it is serial production or if we talk about personalized work, from the manufacture of a prototype to the restoration of a classic boat, the beauty and interest of carpentry and joinery for boats is found in the rich content of the work, variety, precision and, above all, in wood. Different types of wood such as oak, mahogany, marine plating or noble wood such as teak, iroko or sapelli, are what give character to a boat.
In carpentry for boats, woodworking requires specific training that goes beyond the technical knowledge of general carpentry. In a boat the volumes are usually complex, delimited by many curves, but they are also a requirement for the optimization of the reduced space. It is vital to aim for lightness, robustness and ergonomics, so that the boat is as manageable and comfortable as possible, maintaining the most beautiful aesthetic possible.
