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


  1. Those cleats look great Anders. I am going to have a go at making my own blocks (with derlin sheaves) and my brother is going to cast some cleats from bronze. Don't know how it will go, but if it doesn't work I'll think about making my own from hardwood.

    1. Bronze cleats would be really nice, I wish I could do that. Have been thinking about wood blocks but I think it will have to wait inte next winter, so I'll go for all plastic for the time being.
