I usually glue the scraps together to make a table top, be it a hardwood flooring job, or boat building planking, etc.


Yes, I can say that very little wood scrap makes it into the bin around here, it all gets used up making jigs for our production shop, tool holders for our benches etc.

Doing a fine job on it, looks good.


Thanks, with any luck I will be ready to flip it over in a couple of weeks. I'm getting read to steam the lamination for the outer stem today.

Moving ahead with the outer stem and keel

Steamed and then laminated the outer stem on the boat.

Test fit of the trimmed stem on the boat

Laminated the keel on the boat.

An hour or ten of planing and sanding later

A little trimming still required.

Wow! What a lovely set of curves. It almost seems a pity that the underwater shape of the hulls of our boats seldom get seen.

Thanks Pete,

I am thinking that my launch will spend 99% of it's life sitting on it's trailer with a top cover on it, the underneath will be seen more often than the inside I am guessing.
