Some time ago, I made a template for some grab rails on top of the cabin. Because these rails need to follow the curve of the top panels, I decided to make them from three 3/4″ sticks glued together, rather then cutting them from solid stock. This way I can get the rails curved as I glue the sticks together. The third stick will not be a single length, but short blocks for the ‘feet’ of the rails. The blocks are a bit wider than required, so that I can trim the rails with the router using the template.
After some more sanding inside the cabin, I installed the reinforcement for the (removable?) tabernacle on to bulkhead 2. This is a 3/4″ thick piece of Tasmanian Oak, glued down and held in place with a dozen temporary screws driven in from the front.
