Coming Soon – Lowery’s Deadrise – a guest photographer blogging about the building of a Traditional Wooden Chesapeake Bay Deadrise

Before having twins at 40 I spent from 2007-2015 renovating and rebuilding a 200 year old farm house. I found a passion in woodworking that I never imagined when I practiced law 15 years ago. It was a joy working on a house that used many hand-built details from the heart of pine floors (leveled from underneath with a hand adz) to the mortise and tenon joinery of the roof (you wouldn’t believe how wide the lumber they used was!). Have spent nearly 10 years immersed in that world I have a special appreciation for subject matter that is being featured in Fort Birthday’s first Guest Blog.

Talented photographer, Ned Egan, provides pictures for Fort Birthday from time to time. We love showcasing his work (and when he babysits since he also wears the hat of Papa to the twins). He is embarking on an ambitious project to document the building of a traditional wooden Chesapeak Bay Deadrise by a local boatwright. And as part of our collaboration (and since he walks the dogs in the morning) Fort Birthday is proud to announce that we will be hosting his guest blog: Lowery’s Deadrise. This will be a photo-rich journey captured through the eye of a visionary photographer.

We share in Fort Birthday
