Binnacle for Surprise

G'day shipmates: I finally managed to finish the binnacle for Surprise. I found some close grained walnut in the barn that I had cut down years ago, and I sawed and planned it to the required sizes and finished this very interesting detail--FINALLY!

I made mine from plans sent me by Dan L. and it is very similar to the one he has on his ship, with slight variations such as a little less quality in the construction but from a galloping horse it looks good and I am pleased.

Many thanks to Jerry and Dan for the history lessons as well as guidence on the construction. RG
