I decided to create 3 different Posts for the Main Deck Planking.
What I did for the Planking is to divide the Ship into 3 different sections… Forecastle, Midship and the Poop Deck.
It sure makes it easier when you’re trying to line up the Planks having 3 different sections.
Anyway… Here’s the Midship Planking so far…
Notice that I have one long Strip of wood on the Port side of that set of Planks next to the Hatch? I cut it with my Mini Table Saw.
The Glue that I use for Deck Planking is Titebond II and occasionally SuperGlue for repairs.
I find that these Planks in the middle… You can’t really mass produce them as others. Well… You can, but I find that often you have to do a custom fit job so those mass produced planks need to be cut one way or the other.
Anyway, what I’m trying to say is that I Measure, Cut & Scribe each plank individually.
