Blandford Group Build
- Aug 10, 2017
Your frames look great,
Damn Gremlins mess with us all Brother. My Gremlins are usually my own fault. I have to remind myself to slow down, my mind races a hundred miles an hour, but my hands can only work at 50, I get way ahead of myself. I have some clean up on the frames to do yet I noticed a few areas I'm not happy with so back to some sanding this time by hand since I'm pretty close to where it should be to look nice. My wife thinks I'm nuts trying to make areas look good that I'm just gonna cover up with planks, but I know its not right and I cant wrap my head around leaving it that way. I'll spend the evening getting the frames the way I want them and hopefully cut my Keels rabbit. I'll then be done with this build for a few days while I work on another Project. I build several things at once to mix it up a bit as in the past I get tired of doing one thing and just stop doing it all together for a few months. It's also nice to work on something difficult like planking then something fun so I try and plan my build segments around that principle, so I get a reward for doing something I dislike lolEverything looks good, Joe!
You guys have inspired me. I brought my Blandford out and am ready to start gluing frames to my keel. I had to make frame 7 over again, because of poor fit in the jig. It had to be my fault but the frame wasn't wide enough. I used the template for frame 6 to make a new frame 7 and it fit nice and snug. My testing of the fairness of the frames confirms it was the right call. Gremlins seem to get into these builds, somehow!
