I'm going through the process of having a wooden boat built at the moment. I'm wondering whether to glue up the coach house sides out of smaller width stock or to make them out of 1 plank. The house is 500mm (20 inches) high at its aft end and at least 32mm thick (1 3/8 inches).
I'm concerned about cupping or cracking if we use a single plank either side. I'm also concerned that when glued up the sides will show glue lines (light timber and I'm a resorcinol addict).
Remembering that Australia is a hot dry summer place, I'd appreciate ideas here.
