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 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!
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’m thinking about adding some Tree nails to make it look a bit cooler.
So I ended up screwing up once again and bent the Planks in the wrong direction!!!
So now, I’m having to wait for the other pre-soaked Planks to bend.
I’m still getting Splintering though… Even with Ammonia. I may leave it in a bit longer than 1 hour next time.
I’m kind of annoyed at myself for not taking in the edges of the Planks as it makes the turn… I forgot to do it. It’s really kind of minor but it’s something that “should” be done… Hmmm
