Bow Cheeks

The instructions haven’t called for it yet but I decided to go ahead and get this step over with.

I’m not even sure what this is called. But these planks are here to make this gradual curve on the stem from the bow.

I need to fill in between the 2 sets of Wales.

I’m in the process of bending the Planks now. With my new used Iron I bought from Savers for $5.99! LOLOLOL!!!… This iron is perfect for the job too!

Put in this 1mm Filler between the Wales and the Planks on the Stem

This entire thing will be sanded down to a nice smooth curve for the ornamentation.

It does look like I’m making a mess of a perfectly good Bow… Hmmm…

I realized the Port side sticks out a but further on the Wales. I did adjust for it.

I’m thinking about adding some Tree nails to make it look a bit cooler.
