You can build a scarfing jig to use on your table saw...when scarfing the gunwhales and chines. It's easy to do and makes the job much easier.

Thanks for keeping us updated.

Well it's not as sexy as mahogany side panels, but I've got my frames lofted. Hope to get them cut soon

Looks like my geometry homework from back in the day...

Can't wait to see the finished boat!

Well it's tough to get stuff done when your table saw brushes look like this

Hopefully will be back at it this weekend

Default Dado blades and Craigslist saws

I now know the reason everyone starts their build thread after they've gotten their stem, frames and transom done. It's not very interesting progress. But after fighting my old saw and buying a new one, I'm getting consistent progress finally, but a dado blade set would be nice.

This brush has less than an hour on it


Stem

When I built mine....I attached the side panels to the stem and transom. This step really gives the boat its beautiful lines. I then used the completed frames to spread the panels out. Glue and screw....easy peasy.

At that point....I got excited and really started putting in the time to finish it.

Thx for the update.

Thanks drifter, I'm going to do the same thing. Have the stem done tonight, and might start on the transom. Once those are done I'll get my frame 5 complete and I'll have the basics of a drift boat hull. It's nice knowing I only need a few more pieces of lumber and then all the structural stuff is accounted for. But I'm trying to take my time on each piece so the boat looks good in every detail. I completely understand why frame kits and even complete kits cost what they do. If you look at a frame kit you think, "thats just some 1 x 4 how hard could it be?" well, its not hard, just extremely stressful haha

True.

You're cutting a lot of compound miters.

Epoxy is an incredible thing, turns 1/4 and 1/2 inch ply into a perfect 3/4 inch ply


The cutaway


Transom rough cut
