|Day 4||Grinding down the pieces to match blueprints|
|Day 4 is actually several
days during the week spent during slow times at work
grinding and comparing sizes. It has became apparent that
accurate cuts are very important as grinding is very time
consuming and labor intensive!
Also setting out the blue prints in only dry weather conditions is a must. We noticed that laying the warm plans on a cool plywood table made a difference, probably due to a bit of moisture present on the plywood. Firstly we lay the cut piece over the plans and plastic to check the lines. Then we grind off any extra on the curved sections. Test the piece at the sole line for straightness, and finally grind down the center side to make even while mesuring thickness at known points.(ie tip of keel and top of keel)
