Am watching your build.  Looking forward to more of this project.  Do you after getting the frame too this point have any tips for what you had to think on or encountered during this assembly.  I purchased this semi-scratch parts project back in 2017.  Have it laid out on the work table just starting to clean and prep f/rabbit.

hi Rick

before i start fairing the hull i always try to look on photo and plan it in my head as best i can , 

chuck always try to tell not to rush thrue this at this point .

am also using chuck's metod for planking the model, and at this point am using photo ... photo speeks for it self ... wel for me anyway,

i do have mistake but try always to learn from it . 

this prodjekt my task is to learn more and be better to planking the hull using chuck metod . 

chucks kit and parts is one of the best , so have a fun with this build 😊

my nex photo is coming soon ... then i wil be at the point of start planking ...

thanks for likes,

the cheerful build is going nicly farword at this time,

the sills are finish and the stern frame is glued on and sanded down to match the planks,

next is to make the port sills at the stern and determine the wales before planking..... still waiting for the lumber...

Hej min van,  Couldn’t resist, my father’s father was Swedish, my father’s mother Norwegian. Everybody on my mother’s side Irish. I only know enough phrases and words in all three to get my butt kicked badly, except for all the Christmas phrases. Anyway your Cheerful is coming along nicely. I’m currently building her in Alaskan Cedar.

Just remember when you add the second layer to the wales, that as the wales approach the stem they taper their thickness until the wale is the same thickness as the regular planks at the stem. They no longer stand proud of them. You may want to taper the first layer a bit so that the second layer doesn’t become tapered paper thin. In other words taper both layers equally to obtain the finale thickness where they meet the stem. I would wait until you have the lumber you need to figure out how you want to achieve the taper. 

   Chuck stated he overlooked this detail and had to go back to correct it. I know he did it deliberately to make him look as if he is a mere mortal. He’s very sneaky that way. Since the wale is painted black, it really does’t matter what type of wood you use, as long as it will take a decent finish (paint or dye). 

     Is your building board some type of butcher block? If so that would cost a fortune in the US.
