Construction

Our speciality is the manufacture of laminated wooden tillers. These are made to a very high standard using pine and Brazilian mahogany bonded with West epoxy resin and finished with a minimum of eight coats of varnish.


Design

The shape,size and method of attachment to the rudder is crucial in designing a tiller. Because getting this right is of primary importance we discuss this with you by phone and/or email and may require sketches, tracings or photographs to clarify any finer points.

Our tillers are usually made using either five or seven plys. This will depend largely on your preference but seven or even nine layers may be necessary if there is a sharp curve in it as in the one pictured below.
