Whew! 1 side and the bottom are sanded. At least it looks something like a boat now.
Also tried my hand at creating spacers for the inside rail. Saw somebody do this here on the forum.
Whoever it was had a drill press or a much more steady hand than I cuz mine were terrible and a waste of wood.
I'm also starting on the inlay fabrication.
Already cut the Ebony strips and Poplar strips to size and glueing them together.
Made my jig and cutting the small pieces which I will glue together.
