Please be gentle with me as this is my very first build of any kind in 50 years.
Okay, I have made most of my homemade tools such as a wood lathe, drum sander, thickness sander and table saw,
Now I'm ready to go. Except that I would like to make a mini table saw soon.
So I got some old wood that a buddy gave to me from an old broken down recliner chair. I don't know what kind of wood it is, but we think it may be Oak. I ripped it down to size and put it through the thickness sander and I think it looks pretty good.
I have made the Keel and the False Keel so far. I used the homemade scraper shown below to scrape out the rabbet on the Keel for the Garboard Plank to sit. The Keel shown below is my second attempt, the first one was not good at all because I used a utility blade to scrape the rabbet and made a mess of it.
More updates to come in the future;
