Old Modern Handicrafts can bring the sea to your door with a galleon or nautical globes, too.

Old Modern Handicrafts specializes in everything that is nautical: nautical globes, of course, novelties, decor and other beautiful things. but their real passion is ships.

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 of the highlights that OMH says led them to success:

Extensive research through original plans and pictures make our models authentic.

100% hand built from scratch using “plank on frame” or “plank on bulkhead” construction method.

Each model was built by skillful master craftsmen with many intricate details.

Hundreds of hours required to finish a model at museum-quality level such as HMS Victory or USS Constitution.

The crafts are made of finest wood like rosewood, western red cedar, mahogany, teak and other exotic wood. Chrome, brass or cast metal fittings and ornaments constitute the excellence of our models. Each model goes through a demanding quality control process before leaving the workshop.
