In such a fast-paced world, classic beauty seems gone too soon but the memories
live on. At Old Modern Handicrafts, we work hard to bring those memories back to
life. Old Modern Handicrafts (OMH) uses the old way of building ship
models while integrating modern technology. The traditional plank on
frame or plank on bulk head method is done by hand and followed by our high-tech
tools such as laser machines to create beautiful, accurate details that are
scaled down in precise proportions from the original model. The old
and modern technology work seamlessly together to create a product that
will become the center of attention for any home or office.
Besides scale models, OMH also makes wooden canoes and kayaks that looks beautiful and also performs well on water. These boats are strip built from Canadian western red cedar and encapsulated in fiber glass. This combination is strong yet completely transparent so that the beauty of the wood will be cherished and protected for generations. Here are
