  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.

    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.

  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

    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.

  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
