Back to work again

Well it's about time that I start working on the Petrel again. The building season is getting under way and I have plenty things to do in the MAN CAVE. This winter I plan to finish this Petrel and I have also started building a small boat for fishing called a Coot. You can watch the Coot progress at .

Here I am laminating the Stern Stem with strips of Ash. I wet the strips with hot water to let them bend without breaking. When the wood dries, the bend will remain and I will glue it all up.

I did the same thing to make the Bow Stem. After glueing is finished, I will shape the Stems with a block plane and sanding block.
