End to End

“The good stuff” – marine plywood.

After a long winter of hibernating, work on the Bevin’s Skiff has begun in earnest. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been studying the plans and gathering materials including three sheets of Hydrotek meranti/keruing marine plywood (also known as “the good stuff”) and some bronze fittings.

Over two weekends, I completed the cutting and shaping of the stem and transom pieces in white oak. The stem is drilled to accept a bronze bow eye. With the two end pieces done, now I just need to finish everything in between!
