Model Wooden Sailing Ship


I was looking through my ecrater store today and came across this very nicely made handmade model ship. Clearly, someone paid attention to detail and put a lot of time into gluing and rigging all the components to this little model. I would call it a labor of love. It reminded me that the first Monday of September is Labor Day and is celebrated both in the US and Canada. It is a day when we can pay tribute to the men and women who, through their labor, have added to the strength, freedom, and the well being of our nation. Stop in to the Sirocco's Curios store to see what other curiosities are for sale.


  1. I loved your post and your insight on Labor day. I love the ship you posted and can clearly see the hard work and effort the creator put into it.

  2. Nice post. Terrific choice linking your handmade model ship to Labor day.

  3. Really good post, Sirocco! I love the boat! I enjoy good craftsmanship in any form!
