my oars in a row
June 03: Since
I'm still letting the topcoat on the
hull cure, I tackled the oars today.
Yesterday I roughed out a yuloh for
the Harmonica, too. I've been using
my new bandsaw to make the oars and
the yuloh. I have a way to go before
I can say that I'm proficient with the
bandsaw, but it's fun to use, anyway.
been saving a 4x4x8-foot Douglas fir
fence post, almost clear, for a year
now. I had big plans for it, but after
I ran it through the bandsaw, which
barely could cut it, I ended up with
enough pieces to add to some spruce
to makes the oars and the yuloh.
It's a long, blade-heavy oar for sculling.
Do a Google
search on yuloh;
there's some interesting stuff.
step is to shape the oars, coat with
epoxy, and topcoat with varnish.
so far: Add $10 for the doug
fir I used, for a total so far of $371.16.
spent so far: Add 4 hours for
the work so far on the oars, for a total
so far of 108 hours.
