Final spar commenced ….

August 29, 2016

Work has commenced on the last spar. A plain scarf or lap splice is used to join the oregon timber planks to the required length.  Layers of the planks will be glued above this initial layer until the correct height is attained. The scarfs of each subsequent layer will be staggered from the layer below to maximise the spar’s strength.

All recesses and shaping for the spar’s fitting have to be planned before the spar is laminated and shaped. The initial layer already has shapes cut out for future fittings.
