August 2006

August is always a short month for boat building when you take a 2 week vacation. Ok, no more excuses... But I have had a small diversion. Earlier this year we went on a wood turning course, here's the proof (mine are the two pieces on the right and the better ones are on the left).
Turned items
Well, within a few days of finishing the course my father secured a small lathe. But it needed a bench, so here I am making yet another bench.

Having said all this I have managed to finish all the sheer gussets. So some progress was made on the boat. And the vacation was fantastic...
