« Part 5: Unscrewed Part 6 of Jayne's Rowboat Rocker series Part 7: Trimming and sanding »

I’ll end any suspense right now and say that I didn’t make my Christmas deadline for this project and at the rate I’ve been going, I’ll be lucky to make her birthday in June! At any rate, I finally have the boat out of the clamps that were holding the top rails on until I could glue in some dowels.

I cut the dowels flush and then turned my attention to the bow cap. I cut it out and template routed it and worked on the joints with the rails a bit today.

I have a little more shaping to do on the bow cap and some splines to cut for lining it up with the rails. I also need to figure out how I am going to attach it! I think I might do one more dowel and walnut diamond inlay right at the bow, but not sure if that will be all or not. Anyway, I made a little progress and it’s nice to see it without the clamps!

Glad to see you are back at it again. It never hurts to take a little break sometimes. Your boat is coming along nicely. No matter how long it takes, seeing the look on someones face will make it all worth while. The main thing is to have fun. After 35 years of dead lines it is kind of nice working on something because I want to and not have to. Looking forward to seeing your progress.
