Something I thought I would share, my other passion wood and boats.
Lots of projects going on but lots of things getting accomplished.
Working on a solid Sapele table, 24x12 turning out really nice with free floating tenon joints. Tomorrow I should be able to mount the top, sand and finish. I am not sure on what finish I'll be using. I love the beauty of Sapele so something clear, poly or varnish. I'll post pictures of this little gem. Something I am happy to have spent time completing.
I also have been working on some replacement boat parts on a 72 Willard. Pieces that have gone missing after several owners. V birth rails for the filler cushions. Blocks for the swing up berth in the salon. All being completed from teak. I'd like to stain it slightly as the teak in the boat is red. Replacements are turning out nicely. Pictures to follow in the next few days.
On to the Bartender.
Starboard and Port ply now has 6oz fiberglass that has been trimmed to size. Today I worked on dry fitting the spray rail, using 1/4" lag bolts, shim washers on the backside. I think I am going to run down some peel ply and just fill the backside with epoxy. I haven't yet made that decision but will by tomorrow.
