A-cat Seams

touch-ups on form with planes and torture boards. I call these long boards. They are a take off on a sanding block but much more flexible , able to follow the grain and keep you from flattening the fairness of the hull.

The blue tape is lining off the seams. This keeps the compound from mucking up the adjacent wood. One side done and the next is taped off. the tape is pulled while the compound is still uncured. The compound is mercilessly sticky.

Planing the cabin beams. These were cut from fir following the grain.
