The Dinghy by KennyH78 - FINISHED - Midwest - Small

Recommended Posts

I received the Dinghy kit made by Midwest in the mail today.  I bought it off of eBay used for about $10.  The previous owner started to build it, but stopped after the first couple of steps.  All the pieces were there except for the 2 forward frame pieces, but I had plenty of scrap to make new ones.



I used the pre-cut sheet that the frame pieces were in to make a template of forward frames.


Here are the templates


And the templates traced on to the scrap


and here is the completed forward frames


The Dinghy with all the frames, stern and transom attached and after a good soak in water.  I ended up using some small screws to hold it on the jig because the push pins didn't want to hold at all.  Now she will dry over night and I'll try to get back to it tomorrow.

Been a while since I posted on this build, but I have been working on the Dinghy. In fact, I have just completed it. I used three coats of satin wipe on poly for the finish and feel like it turned out really good. Anyways, here are the pics of my first completed build.
