Clarification + Tip
Posted 24 June 2012 - 11:07 AM
Here is a tip I found, I had a hard time finding wax paper at the store, so I tried the parchment paper for cookie sheets over the epoxy butt joints. Presto! No stick! when I did try some wax paper I had to peel it off the joint leaving lots of wax.

Good tip on the parchment paper- waxed paper is a pain.

But NORMALLY, the wooden parts on a ply frame or bulkhead, are towards the decreasing curve of the boat since a boat gets smaller as you go towards the bow, and again as you leave amidships and move aft. That is- from amidships, all bulkheads (frames) forward would have cleats on the front face. Those aft of amidships have the wood on the aft face.. That is so the beveling can be done on the wood part, not the frame. Usually the side towards amidship is the control edge. Also known as the "molded" face
The transom of course is a special case, since the plywood needs to be smooth on the outside
Hope this helps.
