I like the little house. It's like a minature Acropolis built out of wood.

Hi all I know I shouldn't yet but I wanted to see how she would look when sanded down so had a quick go.

I know still Leeds a bit of filling in places but I'm really chuffed how it looks at the moment.

Hi all couldn't resist a bit of varnish (just to see the beauty of the wood grain)

That varnish really brings out the grain which I think could be a real highlight of this build.

Hi all, sooo close 





Shaping the planks to fit the ever narrowing spaces  (scharf joints I think their called ) is a very slow job (and each one is a different shape) but it is surprisingly satisfying when they finally fit.

Finally finished the planking of the hull, luckily the top half is black so I can hide the bad bits under the paint, I'm really pleased with the bottom half though which is good since I will just be varnishing that and leaving the wood to show.

I must admit its turned out far better than I hoped it would.

Hi all well I'm on to the gunwale covers (why they are called that I dont know, they cover nothing have nothing to do with guns and what wale's are I've no idea) anyway I've made a jig to get all the holes in the same place.



Drilled all 52 holes



Gunwales installed





Bit annoyed with the instructions (and myself for not checking) they tell you to drill 52 holes @ 1.5 mm but the brass wire they supply is only 1 mm

Quote from: wikipedia
gunwale

The gunwale* (/ˈɡʌnəl/) is the top edge of the hull of a ship or boat.

Originally the structure was the "gun wale" on a sailing warship, a horizontal reinforcing band added at and above the level of a gun deck to offset the stresses created by firing artillery.

Over time it remained as a valuable stiffener mounted inboard of the sheer strake on commercial and recreational craft. In modern boats, it is the top edge of the hull where there is usually some form of stiffening, often in the form of traditional wooden boat construction members called the "inwale" and "outwale".

On a canoe, the gunwale is typically the widened edge at the top of its hull, reinforced with wood, plastic or aluminum, to carry the thwarts.

On a narrowboat or canal boat, the gunwale is synonymous with the side deck[citation needed] - a narrow ledge running the full length of the craft.

Well shes got a name on her now, I feel shes looking like a ship now and with the lines on the side the proportions are looking better (I did think without them she was looking slab sided)

Hi all finished the planking on the bow (those little bends in the 2x2mm sapeally were a real pain in the bum, that is the 12th set of those, they kept snapping when trying to bend them) I finally managed to get the bend by soaking them in boiling water then giving them 2 mins in the microwave.
