After laminating the stem on the Shellback Dinghy I'm building with 14 strips of 1/8" fir, I realize I've made this thing too thick. Apparently, the thickness of some of my strips weren't exactly 1/8", and I've just learned that little errors add up to big mistakes. The stem is 2" wide instead of 1-3/4". I can't see any way of cutting the thing back to it's proper size (sanding or with a sabre saw), and I'm wondering if it is going to matter anyway. It seems I would need to cut the outside of the curve, not the inside (which I could probably do with an electric planer). I could use some advice at this point. Starting over would be a bit demoralizing.
