On Wednesday a large VCB volunteer crew went to work to smooth down the outside of our cedar strip canoe. All (or most of) the flats of the 3/4″ strips are becoming part of a gently rounded hull. Planes and scrapers and sandpaper and elbow grease were our tools. Happy conversation energized us.
On Sunday afternoon the canoe hull was given more vigorous sanding to turn its faceted surface into a smooth cedar skin.
Next boatbuilding sessions will be Wednesday and Sunday, 12:00 to 4:00.
