HI ALL I THOUGHT ID LAUNCH A NEW TOPIC TO RUN IN PARALELL WITH CHUCKS CUTTER CHEERFUL. PLANS HAVE BEEN PURCHASED AND STUDIED FROM THE NRG. PRACTICUM HAS BEEN DOWNLOADED.....I HAD THIS SPIRAL BOUND AT A LOCAL PRINT SHOP JUST TO KEEP EVERYTHING TOGETHER. BOXWOOD HAS BEEN ORDERED AND DELIVERED....IN 2 DAYS!!!!! I WAS ORIGINALLY GOING TO ORDER THE PRECUT PACKAGE FROM CROWN TIMBER.......HOWEVER WHILST I DO NOT DOUBT THE QUALITY OF JASONS PRODUCTS THE COST OF DELIVERY PLUS 20% VAT AND POST OFFICE HANDLING FEES WOULD HAVE PUSHED THE PRICE TO CLOSE ON £400.
I picked the East Coast Oyster Sharpie for my next project using the plans and practicum by Bill Strachan and available from the NRG. Everything is outlined at https://thenrg.org/genericsharpie.php, and the practicum has tons of pictures. It is so well illustrated that I will probably limit the build log a little and not include things that are well outlined in the practicum, which is available on the NRG website for free. The plans are beautiful, the build looks like it won’t take 6 years like my last one did, and it looks like a very different kind of project, which will make a good break
This will begin my log on the construction of the generic sharpie, based on the NRG plans by Bill Strachan and Al Saubermann. The scale is 3/4" = 1". I purchased the plans, and cut out the building board base out of 3/4" maple plywood. It is purposely oversized. Picture in the photo is construction template A1 which will be glued to the plywood base. There is a blank for building jig 1 (BJ1) which will be ripped to 1-1/2" wide. I've not decided as to whether i'll mill my own boxwood for the project or ask Crown to do it. I've got a lot of things going on, so hiring
