Ribbons and Banners

Ribbons and banners, whichever name you call them, have been a staple of my business since the 1990s. Whether it’s a boat’s name, a motto, your cottage’s title, or a family name, they are an elegant statement. I used to do many of these in teak or Honduras mahogany for boats. But these days, I tend to use regionally sustainable woods like pine and cherry for the work unless the client specifically asks for something else.

For interior work, I advise three coats of satin polyurethane varnish. An exterior application gets five coats of oil-based spar varnish, and a marine application (including, say, a beachfront cottage) receives a minimum of seven coats of marine grade varnish.

I’ll admit that the ribbons are also fun to carve, and like most of my work, I am not motivated by carving things exactly alike. Each is a unique exploit and adventure in carving.

Where would the fun be in that?
