Trying something a little different for the top deck

Cut some 3/8” ply into strips and will glue them in place and then fill the gaps with thickened epoxy.

Being 3ply the top veneer is 1/8” thick... figured it would save some time and materials vs gluing a veneer on top of 1/4” ply

Good idea!
I have never seen plywood that has a veneer that thick. What kind of plywood is that?
At my local hardwood supplier they do have sapele plywood. Found out too late. Maybe on the next boat. :lol:

It’s arauco ply. ACx. Goes for about $30 at Lowe’s.

I believe it’s radiata pine. The a sided is sanded. The c side has some plugs but usually no voids, closer to a b grade then most brands. I’ve never found a void in the core.

You are moving at a spectacular rate of speed! Will this be on Androscoggin in August?

Looks great!
I really like the contrast between the light wood and the dark caulk lines.

Thanks Jim, I had planned on getting some dyes and trying for a darker mahogany look. But after seeing I thought the contrast would work OK. I assume the pine will darken some with age.


Got the rest taped off and did the first fill. A 60ml syr8nge made it slightly less messy. It’s like working with roofing tar.

Got started on the ‘cover boards’. Made a groove and started shaping the edges. Plan to paint once it is all filled and smooth.
