Very good work - it is important not to work fast to make big progress - more important is to make good quality, and this you do.
My friend, I have one question:
The holes in the deck, I guess these are prepared recesses for later installed stanchions / supports under the beam - but at the same location is the door or passage.
I do not have the drawings of the Renommee in hand to take a look, therefore I have to ask you - how is this contradiction solved?
Great work with high precision - And I have to ask, because I am a master of killing drills
What is the diameter of your drill? How often you are braking the drill, so how much you need
Where do you buy them? And which electric tool is it, that you get the access so easily?
Please I need here some advise, because I did not find until now a good and working solution......
It is your work that praises our hobby as the most distingushed of few...
If I would ever try to build a PoF modem I would Stopp RENOMMEÉ right here and only add the decorative pieces - placing her on a mirror to show the beauty of her lines.
Thank you very very much for sharing your outstanding work.
It was a long time ago, wasn't it ! I had "lifted my feet" certainly but despite all the work continued ...
A big piece for me: the false deck. I was not sure how to do it. Finally, I decided to do everything by hand : cutting the slats, adjusting them, sanding etc ...
Some photos of the successive stages :
A small patina, nails :
I decided to make openings in different places where there is something to see. The upper decks will also be opened to show the structure ...
To summarize : the wedge will be visible through the frames and on the opposite side we will see the structure in "plunging" mode.
I make the openings :
The false deck in place - not glued - to see what it gives :
I also wanted a lighting system for the hold and the deck. I had not shown you these photos where I installed some micro-leds in the bilge to start :
All this being practically invisible from above :
continue the lighting work with a whole ramp of leds, embedded in a slat, so that they are not visible when we look between the frames :
That's it for the moment. The continuation next time !
