Chico planed and planed and planed...

Dan cuts down a plank.
Brianna lays out a plank.
"Bryan put a plank on the boat. Brianna bandsawed better than Dan with a 16ft plank. She also spiled a plank. Dan and Chico worked with Bruce and Dan hit himself in the head with a shovel. Chico planed and planed and planed....."

A busy day

May 8, 2012

Brigith and Brian help bend a plank into place.
Sad Chico.
Beveling laps.
 "Today we worked on many different tasks such as bending wood, planking, putting floor measurements down. Others worked on planing wood, the table saw and bandsaw. We were always busy today, no time for rest. I guess that's because we couldn't meet last week for boats because Bruce and the gang were out of town. Also Dan broke a blank and his floor measurements are wrong. PLEASE CHECK HIS WORK!!!"

A tree was wasted

April 18, 2012

"Today we've done spiling. Though a lengthy process in the end it comes with great accuracy. Also we learn measuring is a hard process from some people. 

A cut will not come out good unless your lines are straight and clear. A tree was wasted today to do some mistakes"

All that was done

April 17th, 2012

Brigith and Chico balance working hard and having fun.
 "Today Dan broke 3 batons and recorded the wrong measurements on them ans well, but luckily Stanajah saved the day and checked his work. 

Brigith wore safety glasses and protective ear wear because she was cold. Brian assisted on the bandsaw with Chico and Brigith. Rashid accomplished a lot today. 

Mr. G just watched with his physics shirt. Ian recorded measurements and cut wood. Joel did planing and cut wood on the bandsaw."

Valuable skills

April 11, 2012

"Today we learned very valuable skills to apply to our life. We used a planer on various items all of which were wood based. Next we sat the wood down to be heated, using clamps we attached the piece of wood to the boat."

Stanajah checks the plank lines. 

"Today we did some spiling and cut out a plank. Some of us made sure the measurements on the boats were in the right places so we could start planking." 

By Stanajah White

Rashid planes a plank to fit.
"Now Rashid and I were hard working and are the reason why the boat will float because we began planking. Bruce, Nick and Gersty were great mentors and Rashid and I gave them their props. 

But Gina was trying to help out and took pictures and avoided catching Nay Nay in the camera because you know, the camera was expensive."

Bevel Practice

March 28, 2012

"Today I continued my practice making the bevels. I had to plane flat and curved for different layout types on a boat. Also I saw what the others were working on with the cannons."
