I have designed and made fittings for various projects from various materials. The process of designing varies from very simply copying an existing fitting, making educated guesses to consulting an engineer or architect before finalising. The components I’ve made include bronze thimbles, rowlocks, gaff-span retainers, stanchion feet, chainplates and plaques, to a galvanised steel stem-head fitting, cranes-iron or boat legs. I use Rhinoceros and traditional drawing techniques.
