Bulwarks on Forecastle

The pieces for the Bulwarks provided by Artesania Latina were these big blocks of wood with a laser cut that only traced the line of the Bulwarks and they were much too thick and easily broken.

Pieces that were provided

I decided to make some different Bulwarks by bending some 1.5 x 5mm wood instead.

I used some Contact Cement and then used some CA Glue.

I think a thinner piece of stock gives it a more authentic look… 🤔🙄
