'Oh Joy Restoration' - 01/04/10

I went up and worked some more on that clamp section. After jointing, planing etc. to get it looking good, I realized all I did was waste a $60 piece of wood. The width is fine but the height is 1/8" shy of what I need.

The curve is correct as shown below.

The two pieces match up nicely.

Ah well, practice makes perfect... I think I'll cut all dimension a bit over so I can plane it out nice and slick without coming up short somewhere.

We did get a couple of the foredeck beams done.... it wasn't a total waste.

I suppose I'll snag another board from Targo Wood tomorrow and start again.

Looking good Charlie.
Every piece you put in place is 1 less to put in place.
Building a wooden boat is like composing a symphony. You have to hear the music long before the notes are written.
so many projects--so little time !!
