  3. Guy,what amazing work.I never tought about a mill but it looks like you did in a couple hours what took me a couple of weeks.Nice work. I guess I should put a mill on my "I wish I had the money list".It is a very long list Best Regards; Larry
  4. Hello Everyone.I have been working on aft deadwood #4.Why you ask? I decided that if I could not make this part and get it close to what it should look like,Then I should quit and take up plastic models. Here is the results,made of maple this time. Here Is where I had most of my problem.Getting this to 3mm.I finally did and this end will be covered. The bottom part has to be tapered also to fit the keel.The top and the knee was a problem,the only cutout I could find was the side view of with the dead wood.Wangs pictures did not show this knee being used so I tapered it al
  5. Guy,I am going to try that thickness sander.Nice job. I have a drill press sander but I'm allways looking for something new. I just aquired a disk and long board sander.I'm looking for some way to control the sawdust. It makes a lot and makes it fast. Yes I am on the western side of Wi.Been here about 25 years.When it snows in May it is time to leave. Larry
  6. Hello Guy,Roberts, Wi is a very small town about 10 miles from the Minnesota border and about 30 miles from the Twin Cities. I decided to remake the deadwood again.It did come out better.This time I used maple and the finish is much nicer.I will post some pictures to night or tomorrow. Larry
  7. Guy I am a novice and I do not know what you mean by 3 inch planking also how does the planking relate to the dead wood? Thank You for any help. Larry
  8. Hello Guy,I did the aft dead wood 3 times.I have it ok but not the best.The mohogany is to soft to get a really good edge.I hope you do a better job than I did. Best regards Larry
  9. Hello everyone,I have made this 3 times and hopefully the last. Thank you Christian for your help. A little more sanding and on with the show Best Regards Larry
  10. Hello Everyone,I'm having a heck of a time with my stern deadwood. Christian here are a few pictures of my problem. This is a picture of the of the keel which measures 6.5 mm and the rear of the deadwood which is 3mm On the 3 piece steps the center wood would be 1mm and the steps at 1mm each at the rear of the deadwood.How do I make the keel and deadwood agree Here is the way I did this. Thanks for any help Larry
  11. Thank You Christian for your help. I have re done the deadwood and seems to be better.There is a lot I don't know and I may miss important parts. Hello Augie and Guy.Thanks for checking in.Onward to more mistakes. Larry
  12. Thank You Danial and Rocker, I've been working on the stern parts.I again used 3 pieces.The stern was easer than the bow. I should quite while I'm ahead and build it this big That would make a cute little boat.I'm back to working on the keel Larry
  13. Hello one and all.I finished most of the bow pieces.A real challenge to say the least.The whole thing I did over again,some parts I did Over 3,4,and one piece 5 times. On this part I used the saw seemed to be easier.Yes and up side down.Dang camara "smile" This is the steps cut in three pieces. The rest were cut,sanded.fitted and sanded some more.It takes quite a while to get the fit right Does anyone know where to start the taper and what the final size is on the bow? Where to start next?Maybe the keel? Have a nice day/night Larry
  14. Hello Muggle,What is the name I should call you? Are you in China? My name is Larry And I started this build a short while ago.The thickness of the Bobstay and the Eaking is 8 mm.They will be tapered later. Your picture of the chocks shows only 3 and there should be 4.The timber you chose is nice Best of luck Larry
  15. Thank you Mark and Guy,I did change wood for the keel and bow pieces.I went with mahogony.I will still do the frames in maple.I changed my building technique.Now I am cutting fitting and sanding one piece at a time.It takes a little longer but the fit is better,at least on the bow.Only one picture. Good Night Larry
  16. Thank you everyone for the warm welcome. I have been cutting bow and keel pieces.I took a look and decided to go with a darker wood for these parts.Back to the hardware store.Thats ok for I need practice.There is one piece I was dreading and that was the fore dead wood steps.So I took the easy way sanded the fore wood down to 3/16 inch then added 1/16 Bass wood steps. This made a nice clean steps Best Regards Larry
  17. Hello Pete,I like your work it is very nice.I do like your tools.I have been looking at the Byrnes saw and thickness sander.Trying to convince my self I need to spend $ 900.I also like your noodle sander.That is one of those why didn't I think of that. Larry
  18. Hello to the few, the brave,and the crazy.I have now joined you and I must be crazy to try this build. I am almost done with the Triton Cross Section.I took a look at this build and saw the bow and all the pieces I knew if I could build this I could get threw with a lot of help.I am milling my on wood and the frames will be made of maple.Parts will be cut with a band saw and finished with a home made drill press thickness sander So on with the show Larry The first picture shows how I mount my templates to the wood.Double sided carpet tape then a little baby powder to remove the
