Mark this day! Here I am with the first real actual pieces of Gleda. From this point on she will grow, how long until I can pose with the last pieces?
After the frustrations of last night I was determined to be productive tonight. I solved my plywood splintering problem by cutting first with the Exact mini circular saw and then finishing with the jigsaw fitted with a fine blade. Not perfect but a good finish. So I now have the two skeg sections. The Douglas Fir delivery arrived safely today and I am pleased with the quality. nicely finished clear grade with no knots. The photo bottom right shows the lane between home and the build site, look closer……yes that’s water about 8" deep. No wonder people keep asking if I’m really building an Ark!
