After some questions on the Dutch forum, a picture how I glue the frames.
Working from frame 25, alternately a frame to the bow and to the stern.
Perhaps a overkill, but .....
View attachment 232806
-a frame with a clamp on the keel, to prevent it from being pulled down when further tightening;
- glued the ends of the frames into the jig and tensioned them in the frames with a slat. Under the jig a few frame boards because I have the jig on 2 aluminum profiles for perfectly flat. So the ends will not go lower then the underside of the jig;
-between the frames fit exactly 2 frame boards. Because some rafters are slightly curved (or not 90,000 degree angled overall ;)) and now dry right next to each other.
Regards, Peter
A very nice assembly procedure that should work out well when the ribs are completed. Rich

During the installation of the frames, a "nose" broke off. Not surprising when the grain of the wood is crosswise. Put a new one:

(Sorry, not sharp)
With the frames I am now halfway:
105 Halfweg.jpg
The noses fit nicely with the bevel in the rabbet:

During the drying periods in the framing-proces, I am looking to the next steps: the keelson and frame board.
Special to the nails in them.
In the manual I could not find much about them, but on the drawing 8.2, fig 7 and 8:
107 Nails.jpg
With the translated text:
“Use D186 copper wire to simulate copper nails. Drill holes with a 0.6 mm drill bit, then nail them, cut them, and grind them smoothly.”

I didn't really like the use of this copper wire that way:
1: to bling-bling;
2: every time after cutting a piece of wire, you have to point it a little bit before you can put it in the next hole;
3: They put it in the seam of the front and rear frame.

I dived into my stock and came across 0.7 mm iron nails.
I am quite fond of using the cup-burrs. Therefore:
108 Nails.jpg
1: cut off the head (as much action as cutting the copper wire)
2: round off with the large cup-burr;
3: make a the inner cup with the smaller cup-burr;
4: the nails has already there point.
Test done:
109 Nails.jpg
With 2 nails for each frame, in the front and the rear frame. A kind of wire ends with nut and washer.
On the bottom of the picture the first nail, made of a brass. That’s not what I liked. And why I not want to nail in een seam.
It's acceptable. I have to drill neat holes. And the real keelson is massieve and not laminated.

During the drying breaks of the rest of the frames I can now work about 200 nails.
Regards, Peter

Phoe ............. the frames are done. You have to turn off your mind a little bit, but at the end:
110 AllFrames.jpg
111 AllFrames.jpg

And the traditional Cathedral, special fort @Jimsky ;):
112 AllFrames.jpg

In a other build-log, someone alerted to the silhouette at the end .....
Moments later, a film was shown. Some stills:
113 Movie.jpg
Perhaps Darth Vader fits more. But I am more of the 'Positive Site'.

Up to the bow and stern parts.
Regards, Peter

Well done and evenly placed frames will provide the solid and flowing formwork for the hull planking to follow. Rich (PT-2)

Beautiful work Peter! The wooden cathedral indeed exhibits a church-like ambience! not unlike that of the Onze-Lieve-Vrouwe. I am waiting for the organist to open up that 3780-pipe Stumpfler.

You are well informed Heinrich,

Onze Lieve Vrouwe (Tower) is located in my hometown Amersfoort

Thanks Heinrich and Henk.
I was thinking about the Müller organ in the St Bavo in Haarlem with more then 5000 pipes. With something special: the black keys are double. Because the sharp and the flat are different from intonation. And then playing: Suite Gothique from Leon Boellmann, specially the Toccata.
