Installing the internal gunwale
March 29, 2011 § Leave a comment
I fashioned the gunwales out of strips of ash, approximately 7/8″ x 5/8″. I ran the strips through the router to soften the edges and then epoxied the joint with epoxy and wood flour.
Ash is a hardwood, so it’s no surprise that I needed every clamp in my collection to persuade it to go where I wanted it to go. Rather than screwing the gunwale to the canoe, I again used epoxy.
You’ll note that the yoke has also been installed at this point.
Next up: external gunwales and deck.
