I love the look of the stripped wood on the deck. It has got me thinking of trying to do that on my 16' Ski Boat Restoration instead of trying to laminate a layer of 4mm mahogony plywood on it. Thoughts?

Great looking deck. The outer pattern reminds me of strip built kayaks.
Great work

Fantastic! Making the coverboards out of strips is a great idea. Its really much simpler than plank boards.

G/Day well first coat of epoxy went on this is the first of 6 coats as this seals the timber and makes it stable while i do the other side then when most of the deck is done (except the hatch) it will get 12 coats of varnish.....John

Hi John

Looking great. How did you go clearing the Sapelle dust from the grain of the Silver Ash? I worked Silver Ash and Black Bean together years ago on a laminated curve and found 0000 steel wool and compressed air was good. I like your clamping jigs. we have also used the metal timber straps on long shallow curves. you could put a strap right round the boat!! Looking forward to the next instalment.
Cheers Shaun

Really like the light wood inlay on the cover boards. Very unique. :D
