I wish I could stick to that saying instead of don't measure at all, cut hundred times.Thank you all.
I did not find a 1 mm saw blade at Proxxon. I got a saw blade from a friend, probably in the former DDR .. Its center is 16 mm, filled with ring 10/16. I was also afraid of this work, but everything can be learned. It is important to keep the saying, measure three times, cut once..
I wish I could stick to that saying instead of don't measure at all, cut hundred times.
Thank you Gennaro and eugen.t. Your words are valuable to me.Impressively clean and precise work
Right on spot Ondras. The binding strakes have a constructional function: they support the ribs between the beams, together with the waterways.
Nice gratings! In Holland ribs with laths nailed onto them were used for gratings. Yours are a luxurious variant.
Was the Red Lion a warship or a merchant?
Hello Heinrich. The binding strakes were made of hardwood, the other deck of soft..Dear Ondras. The gratings look beautiful. If it helps, the Batavia has these thicker binding strakes on its deck as well - so has the Kolderstok model. They are just not of a contrasting wood but of the same wood as the rest of the deck. The other difference on the Batavia is that the binding strakes on either side of the grating run the full length of the deck.
In that case your gratings should not protrude above the deck. That is to accommodate the guns. In merchants the gratings were laid into the coamings of the hatch.
Somehow I have the idea that you know more than you suggest
Very good work on the deck planking. Interesting to see, that you are making the butt joints in the same way like @KUDIN - I have to give this method also a try !!!!I slowly continue to lay the planks of the deck. So far, whole boards without hooking..
