Cleats IV

Continued with the cleats, again as I do not have a good wise I had to get a little creative and screwed the cleats onto a piece of wood (again).

Preparing for work (yes, it is my kitchen table, it is -16C outside so the basement is just above freezing)

Screws in place

Ready to start shaping

Plan shape done

Time today: another measly half hour

Cleats III

Looks like the "cleats" series of posts will be a long one, not very much progress for each installment.

I do not own a good wise so I screwed the cleats to a plank so that I could make the long cuts,

In progress

Cutting done

Next it is time for spokeshave, rasp and sandpaper.

Time today: 30 min

Roller stands

Spent some time today to assemble my Christmas gift from the "workshop" Santa.

Roller stands

They will come handy when it is time to cut the birds mouths for the masts staves.
