  • this is what I'm thinking

    I need a project and I need something original!
    I don't know how many times I've been asked when I was going to do a scale model of our boat out of wood????

    I've been out taking measurements and thinking how to put it together...
    if I can pull off the hull, this thing will be crazy with details right down to the trailer.....

    all I need to do now is make a few drawings and get in the shop and start cutting.

        to tell you the truth....
        I'm kind of scared to take on this project and I was hoping that this post would help me get over the fear..

        thanks Pattie and Jim, now the pressure is really on!

              Now if you could find someone with one of those 3d laser scaners they could create a full set of drawings for you. Or maybe from the manufacturer if you ask nice.

                When I tackle a project that is too large to comprehend, I started looking at small pieces. Once that section is done, I get the encouragement to tackle the next piece & magically the masterpiece appears. Okay there may be a few bumps in the wooden paved road, but eventually I come up with something presentable. Ya, it may not be a masterpiece, but it sure isn't firewood

                Trout - I've seen your work & as the other have said - You can do it - Good Luck!!!!!!!

                Also please show the work-in- progress pictures. I need encouragement for my next project

                  From seeing your work in the past this should be doable for you... Possible help on the hull Look up slab hulls in reference to R/C boat building and boat modeling....

                    What......how can you even consider leaving us with the appetite for another one of your fantastic WIP's and not follow through? You only have two choices now, zip your lips or start designing. Where are you going to buy the wood for the BOAT project?

                      this project is getting closer to being a go!
                      I cashed the $50 check I got for judging and spent it on wood..
                      being that our boat is aluminum and painted burgundy, I'm thinking Pauduk or mahogany for the main hull with cherry as the secondary wood.
                      Black walnut will be used for detail pieces like the motors and accessories?

                      just to give you an idea on wood costs here in california...
                      Cherry runs $7.99 per LF, a piece 3/4 X 8 X 36 cost me $23.97....
                      Mahogany runs $9.90 per SF, a piece 3/4 X 8 X 36 cost me $17.82...

                      I wonder why one is sold in linear feet and the other in square feet?
                      it was cheaper than I exspected...
                      luckily I have the pauduk and black walnut..
                      I will need some maple when I'm ready for the trailer....

                              Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

                              Now,...

                              It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

                              Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.
