from stem to transom

Yesterday I made progress in forming the transoms for Bevins Skiffs. These are glued up from Catalpa, an Arkansas wood that Richard Jagels from Wooden Boat Magazine and the University of Maine assured me is good for this use. Tomorrow, after the glue has dried fully, I will cut the transoms to shape. In the same photo you can see the boat stems, also fully formed and ready for the assembly process to begin.

In my own shop, I've been cutting the joints for maple jewelry chests.
