I have a co-worker who I got as a secret santa partner, she said she likes nautical stuff so I was thinking of making her something. Anyone have any ideas on what would be cool to make?

Weather gauge console? Ships wheel? Small sail with mast as wall decoration? 3-D "picture" of a sail boat for the wall?

An actual sail boat? The possibilities are endless and that is why woodworking is so great.
I was thinking something a little smaller than a boat :)

Although I might be able to do something with the wheel idea.

More seriously... a wooden compass, anchor, astrolab? coasters with some sort of nautical shape?

Perhaps a fish, nautilus, starfish, or the like?

Hey, a ships wheel is one of the coolest things you could build if you have the patients. I started one, got about half way, plan to get back to it later. I started a plan of it but was waiting till I fiddled with the configuration a bit before I finished the whole drawing (attached). I updated it this morning when I saw this thread...
