This week was all about the stems and the hog. Both got their initial shaping on the bench with the power plane before being placed on the moulds for additional shaping. After checking to make sure everything was aligned we then epoxied the hog to the stems and the frames. Next week, after fine tuning all the bevels, we’ll get started on the planking.
