I've started to cut out the parts for my Core Sound Mark III build.
Already it's been a learning experience. I had cut out 1 shear strake and was using it as a template to cut the second shear strake. I did not realize how flexible Okume is. I had clamped the 2 pieces together with 4 clamps and proceeded to cut with my router. The rotation of the cutting bit caused the piece being cut to pull out from under the template causing it to be miss cut. I will add plywood using tape and epoxy and recut. Fortunately, this is along the joint lines and will be covered up by the joint treatment. This time though, I will use double sided tape to hold the pieces together.
I'm using Fir for the stringers. Does anyone know if I should be using quarter sawn lumber or does it matter since it will be sheathed in fiberglass?
Once I get all the pieces cut, I will start posting my progress. Unfortunately this will take a while as I'm a long haul truck driver. It's a long time between home/boat builing times.
