I shaped the mast today while the unseasonably warm day provided time outside. Of course this required joining wood to make 16 foot long pieces through scarfing. I had some other pieces of wood for the cleats that I wanted to take the time and round over while I was at it. The goal was to make as much sawdust outside before the temps made it difficult. The idea of putting 16′ through a bandsaw in a 20′ garage made me realize I had not much other option.
Temps will drop 20* back to average tomorrow but I will get the ‘long work’ wrapped up before the incoming storm arrives. I’ll then focus on floorboards.
