I’m slowly working my way around to the turn of the waist.
Yeah. .. Notice the sharp bend on the last Bulkhead to the Transom. It’s very steep.
I find that I have to Soak the wood first for the Stern section. So… I’m doing it by eye so I may end up making some Fillers .. 🙄
I’m thinking to myself that maybe I should start planning more??? 🤔🙄😲
The reason I collect Sawdust is because I use it in conjunction with White Glue for making Putty to fill in gaps.
I’m down to Planking the Hull portion now.
After I finish planking 3 Rows of the Sapelle Wood Planks with no tapering, I will begin the tapered upper section planks that are above the Battens which I haven’t figured out yet.
I just finished Planking the Forecastle Deck. I call these the side jobs while I wait for glue to dry on the other aspects of the build.
I only realized this. When you soak the Basswood Strips in a Combination of around 1:10 Ratio of Ammonia to Water, this treatment changes the color of the wood to this beautiful patina…
