DEAD WOOD + INNER POST: 05/12/2012
Hi every single soul around!
Lots of things have being made during these
days. I have finally “recover” de Aft deadwood piece and start to make the
steps for the aft cant frames.
With the pattern glued to the starboard was
easy to cut the steps, for the other side, the portside, I printed out again
the same pattern but I have used tracing paper (vegetal paper) in order to copy
the same lines in the other side. I have marked with a pencil the lines at the
top and the bottom to be sure that this pattern is symmetrical to the other side
of the deadwood.
I have chiseled the perimeter of the piece
of wood, like if you are modeling a piece of stone. Doing this you assure
yourself not to remove too much wood than it is necessary.
I have work very carefully while chiseling
the wood with X-acto blades out of de Aft deadwood in order to make the step
cuts….like someone said once “the wood
you chisel out, never comes again”
Meanwhile I am cutting several frames to
just relax myself.
Hope to finish at least the stern for the
end of the year…
