I cut the scarfs, lofted the tapers, and did the first round of gluing:
|(Disregard what looks like an overlap of two parts; that is a shadow due to one part being off the ground a bit.)|
|Fore taper; this is all I could get in such a short distance|
|Aft taper; when complete the end should be a 50mm x 50mm square|
The front and rear spacer blocks are light weight white wood. The rear is long to accommodate different clew set ups.
Next I will position and glue the two staves. I have some finishing nails set on the curve line that the bottom stave will clamp to. Once those are cured, I'll add the remaining side panel, shape and dress, finish, hardware, collect measurement data, etc.
