Scarfing Chinelogs

After cutting the boards on the table saw I cleaned up the cuts with the no 4 and glued them together again. I did both at the same time. Hopefully I managed to avoided gluing them together by placing some plastic tape between.

Mast glued up

The mast is now together. A bit of planing and then it too is ready for epoxy coating, as well as some fibreglass in the bottom end. Speaking of planing, I sharpened my no.4 yesterday evening making it a bit convex rather than using a secondary bevel and I got it really right! It cuts soo nice! The wood is soo smooth I doubt I can come close using sandpaper. 

The blade. 

The mast. Gunwales and inwales to the far left, and the wood for the chinelogs in the middle. 3D is approaching!
