Laminating frames ….

September 24, 2017

The following slide show illustrates how the frames for the hull are now being laminated. The timber is old wharf hard wood and is being sawn into various lengths and about 10 mm thick. These pieces are steamed into shape in situ using clamps, bolts, nails and anything else deemed suitable. The bent laminates or pieces are then glued together. More laminates are added by repeating the process. The final frame is planed smooth and painted and appears as if it was made from a single section of timber. All the glue and paint is supplied by our sponsors Hempel (Australia ) P/L.
