« Part 2: Building Stringers Part 3 of 1935 16ft Garwood Speedster Replica series Part 4: Sanding and Encapsulating »

Last night I finished cutting out the stringers with the circular saw and and smoothing them with my Stanley No 7. I just couldn’t resist. I just had to see what she will look like in real life.

the “chine log” is a piece of scrap i used to visualize a fair curve. For that I think I will use white oak. Any suggestions?

Even the wife the visualize the end result!

Next up is a ton of epoxy work encapsulating the frames floor timbers and stringers. Its not really wood working so you may not hear from me for a bit unless I decide to work on the keel, transom and stem.

Until later,

White oak will be great for chines. Very good rot restance and excellent fastener retention.
Fun to watch.
