Back cabin stove for narrowboat ‘Dane’

Here are some patterns that I have prepared this week for a back cabin stove in the narrowboat 'Dane' (1909). The stove is incredibly rare these days but would have once been found in most of the motor boats of the early 20th century.
I am doing a lot of work to this range at present so further updates will follow.

Patterns for replica fiddle rail standards

On the left here you can see an original fiddle rail standard from the back cabin stove of the working narrowboat 'Dane' dating from 1909. These rail standards were used on a huge number of working boats throughout the 19th and 20th century. On the right is the first split pattern turned from beech by Charlie Watts, a very talented Somerset based wood turner. These more to come and then we'll be into casting the first batches of these standards for our replica Guidwife and Larbert back cabin stoves. If you'd like to get in touch with Charlie please visit his website here; http://www.wattsturning.co.uk/
