i will admit that i got side tracked again and continued with the standing rigging on my endeavour ,this morning i got back to the blandford and finished the elm tree pumps , and started working on the upper deck
Hi gang, rather than search through multiple build logs, I was hoping you can steer me in the right direction for tree nailing please . I have done treenails with bamboo drawn through the Byrnes plate and the other method of pushing an awl into the planks and filling the hole with putty. Any...
so i have been working on the cannon openings , this gave me a lot of headaches and i've had to redo it several times , i took measurements of the drawings and cut the openings even though they appeared wrong as they didn't line up with the frames , my thoughts were that the frames were probably in the wrong place due to my bad measuring when initially building it. so i went with it and framed the ports and planked the inside .
i re measured again and the ports were off , later drawing show placement of things on the outside that i wouldn't have been able to put on properly , so i re checked and found that there are 2 long cross sectional drawings and they are different and with my luck i picked the one that is wrong,
the second one which is right is in the part 5 folder the one that is wrong (which is the one i used is in the part 3 folder , i will upload pictures once i have it fixed , i don't think you will notice anything unless i point it out , i will let you be the judge
so heres the first side after about the fourth attempt to get it in the right place etc, i think i can live with it and as i have read in other threads its a learning experience and doesn't have to be perfect , just preparation for the next time . i'm not going to show the other side because its still in quite a sad state , but now i know how to fix it so it should be ok too
got both sides done , both came out ok , here you are , the eagle eyed among you may notice that the 2 scarf joints are alternate ways up( meaning one is up and one is down ) but hardly noticeable unless you compare both sides. doh
