Graham, good idea. I’ll pick up some balsa blocks to “practice on”. But today is another snowplowing day. Another “Monster” snow storm has arrived. The forecast is for wet snow, rain, then freezing rain. Third such storm in the last two weeks. Going to be a long day.For bow blocks you could try balsa as it is so much easier to shape and does the job well.
you will love having that tool Brother I have one similar and its a mainstay in my shop for small stuff. wife doesn't like me sanding in the house so its a garage tool but used very often
Good that you realized it at an early stage of the building - and very good, that you use a glue which can be softened - I am using for most of the situation a standard water based wood-glue, especially for such situations! And these happens also to me (often enough)Whoops, almost a major error.
Had a couple of minutes this morning. I was showing my build progress on the Lobster boat and noticed that I had reversed frame #4. The door opening should be on the Starboard side.
As UWE says "check the drawings, check again and if not sure check ...."
Funny that I didn’t notice the error sooner. I drive by Lobster boats moored in the harbor every day. But there seem to be a lot of variations in the 1:1 scale boats. The clips are from commercial pictures of Lobster boats moored in the local harbor.This happens to all of us. Nice catch.
