Folks seem interested in these cheap, easy, and fun cardboard ships I've been making. So for the next round I attempted to make a tutorial. Be forewarned, halfway through I got bored of taking photos and missed a few steps.

Here is the process I used to build a small sloop which I imagine as Sam Bellamy's Marianne. Below that, I'll add a short description of steps I took to build a slightly larger, 3-masted ship which I imagine as the Sultana, another of Bellamy's.

thanks guys! I'm almost done painting these, and looking forward to starting on the rigging once they dry. I also did some work organizing my blog. I made a page where I've linked all of my posts related to pirates and ship building, and wrote a little essay explaining my interest in the subject.
