By SIBs we mean Ships in Bottles of course. It's a hobby I used to enjoy, before Real Life began to eliminate any time for hobbies. But my friend Jim Goodwin in North Carolina has taken SIBing to a new level, turning pro a few years back. He made the SIBs for the movie The Lovely Bones as well as many, many custom bottles.
Now he's offering a course in SIBing at none other than Roy Underhill's Woodwright's School. (Jim was featured on one of Roy's TV episodes). Check it out! Anyone in the area interested in SIBs should take part.
More on Jim's work can be found on his web site, Carolina Ships in Bottles
Okay, now I'm flashed up to get SIBing again. I'll post a photo of the last SIB I made, once my daughter gets back from retreat with the camera (assuming she gets back with the camera).
