Handmade Custom Boat in A Bottle!

 A local dock builder builds boats in bottles for me!  No kits.  No tricks.  He actually painstakingly builds them through the neck of the bottle, with tools that he made specifically to do each part over 8-10 weeks.  This is the "HONEY BEE", just completed for a customer's Dad's 80th birthday gift.  Howard makes the wooden stoppers and does ropework on the  bottle neck.  We add an engraved brass plaque.  A very very special gift, truly one of a kind.  Isn't it neat?  A Jack Daniels special edition bottle was used.
