2005-07-21 First cut. There was no time for bulldozing free space as I was in hurry to get the boat finished.
2005-08-07 I calculated the consumption of chipboards by sketching the moulds on a peace of paper .
2005-08-07 Measuring the moulds on 18 mms chipboard.
2005-08-07 Listings from the spreadsheet with new coordinates where the baseline is at the edge of a board.
2005-08-08 Cutting the moulds was far too easy after the tough measuring.
2005-09-03 Mould supports are secured with glue and 8 mms bolts. I drilled more than 4 meters of hole for the bolts.
2005-09-16 I didn't pay too much attention on the strongback because in my opinion the moulds must anyway be measured in relation to each other instead of the workshop floor.
2005-09-16 A thread is strained perpendicularly across the horizontal mould supports to mark the centerline. By using supports I beliewe that fixing the moulds in their right position will be easier.
2005-09-16 Somewhat easy to lay the moulds in their positions...
2005-09-16 Looks like a boat.
2005-09-23 Notice the old bird house on the wal. It needs some fixing before next spring.
2005-09-23 The moulds are glued and screwed with crossbars to each others. The jig feels quit firm.
2005-09-24 The first season has come to its end and the cleaning job is also done.
2006-04-10 The moulds needed some shaping and still needs after this coarse grinding.
2006-04-11 The result was mainly sawdust on the floor.
2006-04-18 The brackets could have been attached on the other side though it was a minor inconvenience to carve them.
2006-05-01 I tried to fasten the inner stem before bevelling it, but the result was not satisfactory. It is easier to first saw to the center line and fix the piece in right position afterwards.
2006-05-25 The transom is built from plywood and teak.
2006-05-28 A digital weighing machine for kitchen use is a practilal aid for measuring the ratio of epoxy resin and hardener.
Every one can notice that the picture and this text has nothing to do with each others.
2006-05-28 Messing around with the transom continues...
2006-06-30 The transom is now in the correct position. Finishing has to be done later.
2006-06-30 The inner stem will be fitted here - yes, I am not a carpenter.
2006-06-30 The hog is laminated from two planks.
2006-07-01 The jig is almost finished.
2006-07-02 Beveling the transom was not that hard. The frames should have been some wider but that gap can be filled with epoxy and sawdust.Go to top
