Nut Boat Navy
Nut Boat Navy is a line of model sailboats made from walnut, hickory, and other nut shells. The shells are cracked carefully into halves or gathered pre-split, then sorted, and sanded. The hulls are covered with natural wood veneer, then the masts and sails are installed. Since nutboats are handmade from natural materials, natural variation is part of the design. Nut boats are made by Lauren in her studio just outside Philadelphia, PA. Nut boats can be purchased through the Nut Boat Navy Etsy store.
