Page 1 of 18
This document contains the instructions for making a Rudder, which is a beautiful decoration forany wall. For example, it can be the wall of your living room, restaurant, raft or any other placeyou choose.
For making a rudder, you should purchase some dry wood with nice texture, like oak, cherry, beech,ash or walnut. For making the Circle (item 4), Front Cover (item 5) and Back Cover (item 6) you can usea bit more pale type of wood or some soft alloy (copper and aluminum). Rivets should be made of somesoft metal material, so you could easily assemble the project.NOTE: The measurements within this text and 2D documentation are given both in millimeters andinches (in brackets). This website is based on ISO measurement unit system, which is the internationalstandard. I apologize to the people who use other measurement units; but I believe that measurementsgiven in millimeters and inches should be adequate for everyone who would like to build this project.Besides that, on today’s Internet it is easy to purchase the ruler containing all the measurement unitsand overcome the difficulties of any kind.
