Wale Port

I had the Walnut Wood Strips 1.5 x 3mm soaking in Water + Glycerin for almost 24 hours. I had no problem bending it.

Form Shaping

These DeWalt Clamps only go so deep. The Wale will be down below the Sapelle Wood.

First Wale in

I used Contact Cement and in some spots SuperGlue.

I added SuperGlue on the very end

Yeah… I put another coat of Black paint on it…

2nd Coat

I always feel like an Able Bodies Seaman sitting in a Bosun’s Chair while painting over the dings in the Wale up some river in England… 🙄🤔
