Here's the second layer of 4mm Hoop Pine plywood being glued down using stainless steel staples. Using two layers made it easier to follow the curve of the bulkheads. Some crown actually followed into the side decks.


  Brian lucked up and found some beautiful straight grained Oregon being glued up here to make a 4" x4" x 20' board.


After running it through the planner I made a few measurements and using a batton, drew the taper lines.

I was very hesitant to put a saw to this very expensive piece of timber but it had to be made 8 sided.


And then 16 sided and then the ridges were hand planed.  


Rob brought in his "mast rounder" drill attachment. It saved me hours of hand sanding.
There's always a little more sanding to be done.
