Planking the Inner Deck

building

Another day of patience and a lot of precise work using a block plane and a thin Japanese saw.

The most challenging parts are the tip at the bow end and the sharp corners at the stern. The strips are very flexible but getting them to twist from the horizontal middle section to the vertical sides of the stern can be tough.

After finishing the planking the mold was flipped over and everything locked in place using epoxy resin.
