  • Kathy Wise's Sailboat

    This is the one from her book.

    As I was putting it on the backboard, something slipped. As I went to glue the last piece in place, I had a 1/8-inch gap. I knew the piece was cut correctly. When I put it on the pattern, it was absolutely correct. So, somehow, in the final assembly. something got moved. Since all the other pieces were glued, I couldn't wiggle things around to get the correct fit. I had to cut a new piece and shape it.

    But, it all came out OK.

    Sails are poplar with Spectraply. The boat is yellow pine, holly and western cedar. The water is Blue Pine. The backboard is 1/8 " BB ply laminated to 1/8" masonite to keep it from warping.
    The finished project. Where did that gap come from? It fits on the pattern, almost perfectly

        Careful it could be a road of no return.

              Great job Tony. And thank you for shaping the foresail correctly.(a pet peeve) I like this design and the spectra ply adds an interesting touch of color.

                    I use a lot of it - more on lathe turned items than intarsia. But, every now and then I get an opportunity to use it in a carving.

                    The thing to remember about it is that they use water based dyes to stain the wood. So, finishing should be strictly oil or alcohol based. Even runny Titebond glue can cause problems.

                          How did you do the windows on the body of the sailboat? Did you do them as inlay with the table tilted, or did you just cut very carefully and get a perfect fit that way?
