Sample text

Practice on some scrap material and concentrate on a straight, easy action. When it’s clear that the cut is well placed, slowly increase the pressure and the length of each stroke, taking care that the saw remains at right angles to the material and that the cut is following the pencil line until you are almost finished cutting. Just before the saw breaks through the last of the material, change the angle of the saw so that the handle points downward, and reduce the pressure to a minimum so that your cut ends with a nice rectangular end rather than a split corner.

It means you only ever have to measure a few inches from the bottom and left-hand outlines of your 10-inch boxes! Rub out your experimental pencil marks and start making out panels in earnest. You may have noticed that the designs in this book vary in the number of coordinates that you have to plot. There’s a trade-off here. With plans with many coordinates, you simply have to plot the coordinates and join them up with a pencil and a straightedge; you can be sure of getting a good shape. This works well with small boats, while with larger boats it would produce panel profiles with visible flat spots.

I’ve heard it said that two minutes is long enough for mixing, but I’d argue it’s safer to mix a little longer. ■ Generally, a brush up to 3 inches wide is fine for applying epoxy to a small boat. One of those neat little rollers they sell for applying gloss paint can be useful when working on large surfaces, but it is far from being essential. Brush the stuff on rather than pour it—pouring can result in an uneven thickness, particularly in hot weather in which the mix gels quickly. ■ The epoxy companies will also sell you a range of fillers to mix with your epoxy.
