Hal Hammond Posted June 25, 2022 Report Share Posted June 25, 2022 Working on Ravenswood Standard frame now after finishing my wife’s LV. Once you have the frames prepped and stringers scarfed, it goes pretty quick. The most frustrating part was finding decent, knot-free cedar. Typically my stringers ended up with 2-3 scarfs and I often had to cut them apart and reglue because of hard spots, or small kinks. If the stringers are kinked, you won’t get a fair curve when you assemble the frog. Heres an example along with my solution (middle of three). The trick is to clamp the scarfs against a long piece of steel or aluminum angle. Once I started doing this, ALL my glueups have been straight. Give it a try if you’re struggling to get straight stringers with multiple scarfs. HH 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
