Planking and Clamping

Note: This post continues from earlier Planing and Shaping Timber

Each plank is removed from the steamer (see Steaming and Malleability - 12 Nov)  and, whilst steaming hot, is shaped to the side of the lighter and held securely in place until clamps can be attached.

Dean Burrell holds steaming plank in place

 John Christian-Bailey secures the clamps

Each plank is held until the shape is confirmed to the lighter

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