THEN THE WOOD

When the hull is finished, a meticulous collaboration between the glass artists and the cabinetmakers from Egeværk begins.

As every hull is unique, every keel has to be constructed accordingly. Careful drafting and fitting is required for each ship. The keels are made of oak – a must in maritime crafts due to its hardy nature. The strong wood is carefully handled until completely perfect and smooth as silk. At the end of the process the hull and the keel are joined and the ship is being ground and polished for the last time.

The details vary from ship to ship – as does the overall expression of each ship.
