Stern Quarter Gallery

The Quarter Gallery consists of 2 pieces that I have to glue together before putting the windows in.

Here I’m gluing in the first piece…

The instructions want the name to go below the Quarter Gallery but I like it the way it is so I’m leaving it.

Right now I’m trying to figure out how I’m going to make the angled braces that go below the window columns in the Gallery.

I tried out 3×3 Walnut but it kept splitting on me so I’m trying to glue some Beech together to make them.

Instead of putting those triangular braces under each Window Columns, I used my Micro-Shaper and shaped this piece of 1.5 x 4mm Beech wood and stuck it underneath it. It still looks really good and it gave me a chance to finally use my Micro-Shaper, of which I’ll do a review soon.

Main Deck Planking – Midship to Stern

Starting to do the Main Deck from the Midship area back to the Poop Deck on the Stern.

Starting from the middle

As I got to the edge, these Planks that needed custom cutting to fit became more difficult.

Edge Planks

What I normally do is to hold the Plank against the edge and make a Mark at that point. Then, I taper the Plank from that Mark all the way to the end.

I filed out the Main Mast Hole halfway through planking
End cut on Starboard side… This one went in perfectly after the 1st cut!!!
Ugh… I went and covered up the Mizzen Mast Hole forgetting to file it out first!!!

Good thing I remembered it before the glue dried!
