Planing the gunwales


Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm building a solo Crawfish and am now ready to attach the gunwales. The instruction book reads, "...you will need to flatten the top edge." Does this simply mean that you want a straight, consistent surface along the length of the gunwales where the spacing blocks will be placed? Or do the gunwales need to be planed down so that the top surfaces (inner and outer gunwales) are parallel to the floor? I'm a bit confused as the top edges are already flat since I ran them through my table saw.

You should repost this to the Kudzu section.  Jeff will likely see it if you do, he may not come here much. It would also help to copy the whole paragraph around your quoted section above.  More context would help a lot of people answering this.
