Gpysy Rose Hatch Cover and $25 giveaway.
Here is a photo of the hatch cover right after we brought Gypsy Rose home from the folks we bought her from.
As you can see she is pretty well weather beaten.
WE ARE GOING TO FIX THAT!!
First I will peel off the damaged layers of veneer until I get down to good wood.
Good wood at last!
The veneer here still had some damage on the edge so
I scored a straight line with my razor knife and removed the damaged part.
Now I have layed a thin strip of wood in to fair out the surface
of the hatch cover. The paint cans are just for weight while the glue drys.
Hey, boat restoring is hungry work and this blog after all is called
Woodworkin and good eats so rib steak here I come.
Here I am sealing up the wood with 2 coats of high quality exterior house paint.
Now it's time to cut the cedar strips that we will cover our hatch with.
Don't know what I mean?
See the cedar strip yacht tender I built elsewhere on this blog.
Now I am routering a bead on one edge of the strips and a cove on the other edge.
See how that makes the strips nest together?
Strip number 1!! I am excited!
Here we are 15 strips in.
Okay, that's it for this progress report.
