yes Jimsky, I will add treenail. Now I am searching how to paint treenails strips in black, I love Andrey Kudin method - painting prepared strips for tree nails with black nitro 'graffiti' paint, but becouse of Covid cant get them fast..

Good day,
I decided to do treenails with medical needle and pear, then coloured in black with permament marker. To make strips 0.6mm with filier for me its imposible, I was trying many times, but it was waste of time for me. For coulking I chose variant with black paper.
For now I am removing wales, couse I found some differences on each sides and I dont like curvature, it is a little bit strange, also I decided to change it to walnut

Great work Manatas.Regarding the wales,I would not take every point you mark as gospel,more a case of taking the smooth curve between the points.However,because of the severe sheer and the fact the hull is curving inwards as well,I would expect a "double bend" in this area.The important thing is to eyeball everything from ALL angles when clamped in place before glue.Normally I would cut something like this out of sheet material after first making a template from card.Bending these curves is not easy.

Kind Regards

Nigel
