Re: Mahogany veneers?

Thanks for the info. I have a 2 hp rikon 18" so plenty of power. The blade I had the problem with was the Woodslicer, highly recommended, which I think I ruined by setting sidebearings up wrong, so can't say it was a fair test. I do like the Timberwolf blades. I will order one in 3/4" for resawing, ...

Re: Mahogany veneers?

Billy: You said the "Timberwolf resaw blade is amazing! best of all i have tried over the last 40 years ". As I am getting close to this step, did you use the 1/2" or 3/4" blade? Silly question I know, but resawing takes a little practice. Last time I think I set up the side guide bearings to close ...

Re: Nice cuts on ply

All good answers, and if it hasn't been mentioned, always cut through the face of the plywood you are going to see. Example, if using a circular saw, your face of plywood should be down, since the saw blade will be cutting "up" through the plywood. If using a table saw, the face of the plywood would...

Re: I'm back

Not quite new, but restarting. Last June I posted my new member status, starting a Monaco, and received great responses from all of you. It is now August of 2012, and I'm back and wish to get restarted. Since that time, have managed to get to the fairing process on the hull, and enjoying all those h...

Re: Request for deck seam variations

I am extemely new to this, actually just started, but I have seen a few posts where wood strips, maple, etc, were used for the deck seams. Because black sounds so appealing, would there be any reason that ebony couldn't be used? (except for price) Also, are your seems kept flush with the deck boards...

Re: New member

Bruce, Thank you so much. I was feeling inept, again. Being the first piece, all attempts are being made for "perfect" joinery. And also in my attempt to move through this transom with ease, ha, I have also been scratching my head. Anxoiusly cutting out pieces , then coming to the realization that, ...

Re: New member

Thanks,

And you are right, I went back out and closed one eye, and saw that the beam arch is combined with the lower beam. Haven't see that, but I was assuming the arches would be the same.

Re: New member

Need help on where to post this question about my beginning the Monaco build. On the transom #0, am cutting out the pieces. Question; I cannot find a pattern for the 1" athwartship beam, I see a horizontal, but the arch is no where to be seen. Should I assemble the other parts to find this curve, wh...

Re: New member

Thanks all for your support. I do want to mention I have woodworking experience, am sort of handy, but this is a challenge unlike any I have taken. Time can be a problem though, and so can certain skills necessary to make this happen. From what I see, you guys are woodworkers, fiberglassers, metalur...

Re: New member

Thank you. Today is a day of scratching my head as I look at the frame prints, read the instructions, and get "my sea legs" under me for what this all means. A big puzzle, and challenge, but one worthy, if the rusults will look anything like what I have seen by the other builders.

Okay, have been watching this forum, looking at the Monaco for several months now, receiving the stimulating news letters from Glen-L, and I am hooked. Received first order of lumber, cleaned out the shop , got the fasteners, and ready to start this, in my case, marathon project since I am still som...
