So no laughing !!
reet then am a bit of an impatient fella an tend to rush things -so wor lass says but what does she know ??
a got the plans from e-blag for a `prospector` type canoe a while back ,so while cleaning out me garage -decided i had enough chip board to make the forms and with a bit of decking left over from a job i came up with this strong back creation !!
then i had to wait a week for the cedar to arrive !!
then proceeded to strip it out - now being a `joiner` , i thought a paslode pin gun would save a lot of time and hold the strips solid while the glue dried
but then it dawned on me the inside would be full of holes also
Well !!!too late to worry about that now
the stripping was done !! what a chew on them angled cuts are !!!!
but with a good 4 hours sanding it started to resemble something
then on with the sealing coat of resin
then another good sanding before the cloth go,s on !!
now, not being able to get 60" cloth i had to make do with doing it two halves
so having started it on last monday this is where i,m at today !! should get the other side clothed tomorrow - then the final coats of resin on it !!
having to work outside !!i,ve missed a day or two due the weather so i made a start on me seats
had some oak flooring in me garage so used that ,going to do the decks and yoke out of it as well !!
another update next week ,if the weather holds !!
all comments accepted -so what do ya reckon so far ????
