A Modern take on Tradition

Cabin doors with relief carved castle scene.

The scene is carved from solid Oak and mounted on a Birch plywood backing, the edge of which is stained but can be painted or scumbled to suit.
The centre panel is again solid Oak with roses engraved.
Different center panels are available.
Even the Castle flag can be engraved with a boat name or Boat builders name.
