The keel turned out to be dead straight. Today’s job was to clean up the assembly. The removal of the squeeze-out at the top of the side panels along the center-board was a bit tedious. The rest wasn’t that bad, because everything can be done with the sander (and the router). The two rounded corners in the front of the center-board needed some additional sanding by hand. Still a bit of sanding to do and the edges will need to be rounded over. However, the weather forecast for tomorrow promises cool, dry and sunny conditions – perfect for cooking up some lead.
The rest of the cleaning up can be done after the lead pour, and then this bit of furniture will be a lot more stable while working on it .
