I’m back to the Whaleboat for now. Had to take a break from rat lines and battens on the Morgan. 😆

 

Time to build the Cheek Pieces. First step is to create two 3/8” x 1/4” From the 3/8” x 1/2” piece in the box.

Then carve the cheek pieces from the two 3/8” x 1/4” piece.

These pieces need to have rabbit and lap joints carved into them. 

 

Then glued into place on the bow of the boat.

Saw off the stem post and glue the cheek pieces into place. Easy NOT...

 

Version 2.0 made it to the bow. 😆

A bit more carving/shaping and installation of the bow roller. 😎

Catman42,

 

would you be referring to The Cheek Pieces? Page 79. They are a bit confusing at first.
