    Angry 9'6" Nutshell Pram Transoms

    Is it advisable to cut out the fore and aft transoms on the bevels with the saw - or cut them out square and do the bevels afterward with a plane?

    I think I cut square then planed. If I was braver and had more practice and the right tools I'd probably have cut to the bevel. I think this an area where the gap filling qualities of epoxy can come to the fore.

    I have not built one of these but on other builds I have cut at a bevel oversized slightly and planed true with a sharp hand plane. Works for me.

    I built the 7'7" Nutshell and I cut the bevels for both transoms with a circular saw. I cut the curve on top of the transoms with a bandsaw.

    They're just little, nothing to gain by doing them on the bench, but you could make a mess pretty easily, at least I could. A sharp block plane will do the job nicely.
