So, here we go again. Bulwark capping, I didn't have a piece of teak wide enough to cut these out off, so two strips of teak were cut to the relevant size on the band saw and sanded. A large piece of plywood
was laid on the top of the hull, the hull outline was drawn onto the plywood
, blocks of wood were secured to the plywood
to hold the strips of teak in place but exaggerating the curve. [To allow for spring back]
The teak was soaked overnight, the next day it was soaked in boiling water a few times, whilst still hot and wet it was placed in the blocks to dry.
I had to alter the blocks once to gain a bit more curve.
After the strips were properly dried, the top and sides of the strips were given two coats
of finishing resin
and left to dry, then the underside was coated with super glue and left the dry.
Then the tricky bit, wearing my best glass
es I applied with the aid of a tooth pick super glue to the tops and bulwark
supports and fitted the capping's.
The piece around the stern
was cut out of one piece and looks alright.
wet and dry
