Step 11: Bead Chain the Poop Deck and make the Flag!

I had bead chain lying around from a previous project, but yarn or thick string could work just as well, (it also has a really good contrast with the dark walnut stain)

I cut two lengths the same size so that it wouldn't be too tight or too loose between the posts.

For the flag, I just Googled "Pirate Flag," took one of the images and mirrored it in Paint, cut the two halves out, glued them back to back, and glued the flag to the mast with two flaps at the back of the flag with Elmers Glue.
A <a href="http://www.whatisall.com/automobile/what-is-a-poop-deck.html" rel="nofollow">poop deck</a> is essentially the stern deck of the ship. In a sailing ship, this poop deck is usually elevated from the roof.
bravo! I will be attempting this design soon with maybe a few modifications later...
What Arrrrrrtistry!
Good idea &amp; nice design. If you make one small box and fix in the base of the ship, you can hide the jewelry from others. Then it will become perfect jewelry box also.
You might want to add a row of horizontal pegs sticking out of the hull on each side, (perhaps to hang rings on or something) since a pirate ship without any cannons isn't very piratey.
Oooooo such a good idea! I already gave this to my friend, but if she ever wants it refurbished, then thats definitely on the list
Ah. Not a jewelry box but a jewelry stand. I kept looking for the opening in to the ship's hold and couldn't find it.
That does make more sense, thanks for the correction!
Great instructable! Plenty of pictures to help the reader follow the steps. Thank you for posting. Ahoy mates!
awesome! I love this. I made a jewelry stand awhile back from an old tree branch with mesh in back for earrings, but it's starting to fall apart, so i've been looking for a new pattern. brilliant!
