Re: Barrel Back Build

Questions about Battens.

1) Do I cut notches to leave Battens just a little Proud?

2) After viewing Alycats issue with getting a couple battens to mate to stem, I wonder if starting Batten install from Stem first is a way to do it?

Comments?

Re: Resawing wood.

Jeff, i use that blade. 11" would be a task for a typical 14" saw, but can be done. quite a difference between cutting poplar and sapele, so feed speed would be a little slower. make sure you are feeding a test piece thru first and adjust your fence to the runout of the cut. your style guide blocks...

Re: Barrel Back Build

Scarfing question.

I am preparing to fasten the first sheer to the boat, and then the second sheer is laminated to the first. What the necessity of scarfing the second lam? Why would a Butt joint not work in this application since it is epoxied to the first sheer which was scarf joined?

Re: Roberta's Torpedo

Normally most people will mount the strut and drill the hole after the boat is planked.
