Hello Don,
Nice to see the starting of your build-log.
I am willing to help, but I am not working on the frames on this moment.
But what I see on your pictures, the pins must become always standing on the outside of the lines.
And the basic for outlining off the frames are the squares in the frames in the middle under and above. Where the keel comes.
But the others who are now busy with the frames can hopefully tell and help you more.
Regards, Peter

Hello Don - great to see that you have started. You have already received very good advice. Like @Peter Voogt Paeter and @Canoe21 Lawrence said, stay to the OUTSIDE of the line with the frame on the line. On Frame #8 the top of my frame was also ever-so-slightly higher than the markings. I do however, want to give you advice. I know you have made copies of the frame drawings - so throw the plastic sheeting away. Plastic invites movement of the frame - also the glare will make it more difficult for you. I work directly on the paper. After I have finished the gluing I just very carefully remove the frame from the paper - you will still have a piece of paper stuck to the wood exactly over the joint area - but so what. Then just turn the frame around and sand it lightly away. Paper is wood so if any is left it will do nothing to impede adhesion. Like Lawrence said - take your time. Tonight after work, I will build a frame with you on your log (if I may :) ) and show you every little detail of what I do.

I have already built Frame #8, so let's choose a nice, big frame with no beveling as a starting point - such as Frame #31.

OK Let's start!

Don 1.jpg
The drawing of Frame #31 directly from the book.

Don 2.jpg
Before doing anything else mark your frames clearly "FRONT" and "REAR".

Don 3.jpg
We will start with the REAR FRAME First. I cut out the frame so that I still have my cutting lines on my drawing, but especially at the bottom I try to get close to the edge of the frame notch. This is so that we can position that side as close as possible to the edge of our working surface.

Don 4.jpg
Here are the two sheets that make up the assembly of Frame #31. I have marked the three parts that will make up the rear frame with the red lines.

Don 5.jpg
BEFORE cutting the frame parts from the sheet, mark the REVERSE Side of the parts that are to be cut, so that you know at all times which are BACK and which are FRONT! This is IMPORTANT!

Don 6.jpg
I use an ordinary X-Acto - type (Chinese brand) knife to remove the frame parts from the sheet. Yes, it does take time. Make sure that you cut from both sides and replace blades as soon as you see that you have lost sharpness.

Don 7.jpg
This is what we then have. Now just sand away the little nibs where the frames were attached to the sheeting - no more.

Which then brings us to the working surface. You say you will have to find a suitable table to use the clamps. I have the same issue, so I use an alternative - use a bread board or cheese-cutting board or any flat piece of wood that is larger than the frame. Even the Leudo's building jig will work for this!

Don 8.jpg

Don 9.jpg
Now simply place your cut-out drawing on the working surface so that the bottom-end (frame-notch end) is closely positioned to the edge. You will see that the Leudo's jig is too small for the assembly of the FRONT frame, but for the REAR frame it is fine.

Now position your centre frame piece so that is it perfectly aligned with the drawing - and CLAMP the sucker!

微信图片_20201229095931.jpg
You will see that the clamp i slightly offset to right (as we look at it). That is done for a specific purpose.

微信图片_20201229095954.jpg
And now you will see that the one arm of the frame lines up perfectly with the centre piece!

Please don't glue anything yet. Maybe you can practice getting that centre notch aligned perfectly with the drawing and clamping it. Now there are no pins that get can get confusing or obscure the view.

Taking into account that you cannot stand unsupported, I forced myself this morning to do all of this while sitting down. It was no problem. (I only stood up to take the pictures).

Good luck and good practicing my friend!
