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 some products highlights that lead us to success.
We also custom build models for our customers. We need as many pictures and if possible the original plan for the best results.
