    Re: Epoxy setting time

    I am so on board with dry fitting things! Having done a lot of woodworking, I know how easy it is to make mistakes. (Measure twice, cut once is optimistic! I'd rather measure a dozen!)My plan is to...

    Epoxy setting time

    I am looking ahead to building the Tammie Norrie. Curious as to the average time it takes for most epoxies to set. I will most likely be setting planks by myself, first time using epoxy, and realize...

    Re: Choosing my boat plans

    What about seats, gunnels, trim, etc. Things that would be more machined than chiselled and planed? (Can you tell how beautiful this wood is, and how much I want to use it in a boat?)

    Re: Choosing my boat plans

    I must confess that for all of the woodworking I have done, I have done virtually none with hand tools. So you will have to forgive my lack of knowledge in which woods are best in this boat-building...

    Re: Choosing my boat plans

    I will have to consider the 15' vs. the 13.5', still have some time to decide. Whichever one I build, the kit comes with the transom included. What type of wood should I use for the stems, gunnels,...

    Re: Choosing my boat plans

    Marking the spot on the floor for the casters is a great idea. My floor is absolutely anything but level! And the problem with gaining the extra space by going corner to corner is that this "garage"...

    Re: Choosing my boat plans

    O.K., thanks. I suspected as much. I guess if the trailer is too long, I could just cut a hole in the wooden carriage doors I made. No big deal. (I'm sure she who must be pleased...wouldn't be!) So...

    Re: Choosing my boat plans

    Thanks for the thought, we do have 2 (Sorry!!) fiberglass kayaks, as far as getting on the water goes. It has been my dream to build a wooden boat, especially as much as I love woodworking. As I told...

    Re: Choosing my boat plans

    I had wondered about castors, afraid the jig might flex on uneven floor. That would help a lot. Also thinking ahead to an eventual trailer, as this will be it's future home. 13.5' of boat only leaves...

    Choosing my boat plans

    I have looked at boat plans for years, and have narrowed down the choices to just a few. I have always loved the Catspaw Dinghy, and more recently the Tammie Norrie. I have decided, however, that a...
