Here we go. The cherry wood was given to me by a friend where I work. More than enough for this build and then some. Resized the wood to the thickness I needed and then using 3M spray adhesive, applied the frames to the wood. Cut out all the frames and stored in separate marked bags so I wouldn't get confused P1020306.JPG 34.25KB 6 downloads P1020307.JPG 78.87KB 6 downloads P1020309.JPG 96.61KB 7 downloads P1020316.JPG 72.4KB 4 downloads
Next started the keel, keelson and false keel. Sawed and sanded to size using my Byrnes table saw and thickness sander. When cutting the rabbit I used a razor blade shaped to the size. Before I started scrapping with the blade, since I am doing this in 1:32 scale was able to take a lot of the wast out of the rabbit with the table saw. Then I used the blade to final shape the rabbit.

Next I started building my buildboard. Using some 3/4 MDF and some shelving brackets (taken from a shelf in my garage) I used spray adhesive to attached the frame locations to the buildboard.

Mark, Thanks for looking in.
Russ Wanted to make sure everything would be square!
Bob Real good friend, says he has about 200 board ft in the attic of a barn for the last 15 or so years. Doesn't know what to do with, so I can get more if needed. He is into blacksmithing (has his own forge, so I throw some old files and stuff his way when I find them.
Hi Pete, Well done and thanks for re-starting your build. It's great to have a friend to trade with isn't it.
I recived some cherry cut offs once several years ago and I'm still using them.

You might consider puting the papered sides facing away from each other in the finished frame. That will make it easier to see the layout lines on both sides of the frame. It will also make it easier to clean off the paper after the frames are glued up.

Hello Pete i am really pleased to see you have been able to almost completely salvage and restart your build log, How fortunate you are to have acess to a good supply of cherry. Old files for new cherry seems like a really good deal. I am looking forward to seeing everything "jigged up".
the forum is quickly coming back to life thank goodness.
Thanks for sharing And also for dropping in on me,
I have finally completed my first frame!!!!!!! I am thinking about framing my frame in a frame
I know there is a lot of final sanding and fitting to do to it, but it's my first... here are a few pictures of my frame

Russ, Bob and Rummy thanks for looking in and the comments.
I do have a question. I had saved the information from the old msw on treenail size's but I can not seem to find it. Does anyone have a list of treenail sizes (actual Size) that is used in the cross section build.
Right now I am interested in the size to treenail the frames. I have the Book "HMS EURYALUS" by Allan Yedlinsky, and it says on the square frames a treenail size of 1" to 1 1/2" in diameter. Will this hold true for
the cross section???
