  1. 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. :D

    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 also.



     I am happy and can continue building wooden ships.Few more pictures  Larrypost-37-0-12173400-1368811040_thumb.jpg


  2.  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

  3. 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


  4. 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

  5. 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

  6. 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 sticky.There are other ways but this works for me
