Thank you everybody for good words they encourages me to continue work and building log. For today there is not to much to say, after workday there was searching for 0.8mm brass wire to buy in local shops, and studying little bit about wire drawing with drawplates, anealing metals and so on, 'couse tomorrow gonna try to make nails for joining futocks parts. Bought 50m of brass wire.

@NMBROOK - jig blocks not my idea, these are taken from monography, there was some dificulties to assemble it very very acurate in 90 degrees but now the jig does his work.

@donfarr the plans you can see in #4, Uwek posted link to planset rewiew and cuting process showed in photos. I am not done bevieling and sanding of futocks, at first I want to join parts of them, and maybe someone will sugest me how it will be better:
1. beviel futocks separetly? or
2. beviel futocks after assembing them to the keel?

I cant trust ANCREs plans so I am thinking on variant 2.

On this size and hull form I would bevel after,it is easy enough to do.it will also be quicker and easier on something like this
Regards
Nigel
I agree here with Nigel (as usual) - nevertheless before you finally fix the futtocks with the keel, I would turn the futtocks by 180°.
On the papers glued on the futtocks, the dotted / dashed line is the beveling lines and it is much easier to control the sanding work, when you can see the line

BTW: Very good work - it is getting a very interesting building log

That is a fair point Uwe(no pun intended).I just feel important to mention that Manatas has these the correct way round regarding the actual drawings,on the framing elevations,these are viewed looking toward bow and stern working away from dead flat.Your good suggestion is merely one to makes things easierThumbsup

Kind Regards

Good day ship builders, to continue work it was some testing with making nails, blackening them and so on.
tryed method one:IMG_20191120_174224.jpgIMG_20191120_174310.jpgIMG_20191120_175131.jpgIMG_20191120_175452.jpgIMG_20191120_175351.jpgIMG_20191120_183027.jpg
but tryed and simplest way:
IMG_20191121_164706.jpgIMG_20191121_164807.jpgIMG_20191121_164841.jpgIMG_20191121_165049.jpgIMG_20191121_165844.jpgIMG_20191121_190147.jpg
for futtocks I choose second option, but with first I learned skill to make square or star type nailhead if will need it some day.

tomorrow will continue joining futtocks, and @Uwek I cant turn around futtocks, because there will be second parts on top of paper side and leaving the paper not gonna be an option, thats why I decided prebeviel them separatly. pics will be in my next log.

Thanks for your intrest everybody.

Hi Manatas

You can buy square brass rod,I am thinking of using that for the hull nails on Saint Philippe.Years away from that but I like to plan aheadROTF
I have done the nail "rolling" technique before and found I got a better "head" when using copper.Only disadvantage is that you will have to drill a pilot hole nearly the same diameter as the nail as the copper is softer.

Kind Regards

Don PS WILL STILL CONTINUE THE LE ROCHEFORT, while geeting more experience with the plans

When you order from ancre the monograph, please send Didier Berti some Regards.
But be aware with the Felucca - the frame construction is different to the other ships like the Rochefort etc.
