Planing and Shaping Timber


Note: This post continues from earlier Steady progression of work on the Lighter

Hours are spent working the Norfolk Island pine timber that has been milled and delivered to build the replacement lighter. Dean Burrell chooses the next plank to be worked.

 

The plank is shaped to the curvature of the hull.


When satisfied that the plank is ready for further treatment, it is placed in the steamer for final shaping.

Regular posts on the building of the lighter will be uploaded to this blog.
