Deadeyes and Baggy Wrinkles

We have been busy inside for the last little while. It is cold outside and we have turned to the warmth and relative comfort of the basement to get some things made that we will eventually need.
We would like to say thank you to Page Baird, a fine wood worker in his own right. He is a neighbour and dear friend, who has been lending his hand to helping with the deadeyes.
About half of them are completed and epoxied and the other half need the cut out for the irons and epoxy finish.
We have also been busy with baggy wrinkles (baggy winkles, as my kids call them) I have about 10 of those done as well. They are the anti sail chafers that wrap around the rigging on the vessel.
