    How to sharpen a file.

    Agreed Bluenose2! Yes you can recycle for other uses, gouges and knives are a good example and they hold a good edge when re-tempered and dipped in oil
  12. Marsalv, A project it is a big model! I have the book and the plans so I will be following along with much interest. You have made a good start!

    Fantastic job Toni!
  15. Your craftsmanship is perfect, what a fantastic job of planking the whales and the rest of the hull. I have to ask what type of wood did you use between the bulkheads and how did you add the filler?
