Another day of tinkering

If in doubt, make a tiller for the Kermadec … so here is the glue-up: three thin slats (8mm) of Huon Pine laminated with a piece 3/4″ Tassie Oak ‘grafted’ onto the business end, where the tiller will meet the rudder. I’ll post a picture of the result, once this mess has all been cleaned up.IMG_0386

The nose-block has now rabbets  –  a straight forward exercise with the router.

I also did a bit on the current project. The kayak’s seat-base and rudder with a ‘Norwegian tiller’ ( i.e. single yoke arm, from which a ‘push-pull’ extension will lead forward ) are ready for epoxy and/or paint.
