Paul and All:
Today, I recovered the interior panels for the cuddy cabin. Also began work on replacing the exterior panels to the cuddy cabin that lie under the forward bulkhead. More to come on that later. Here's some photos of today's work.
Here is this evening's efforts regarding the exterior panels to the cuddy cabin. That is African Ribbon Mahogany ply. It is beautifully grained. I will be making a matching glove box and instrument panel out of the same stuff.
Note. I used my new Chrismas present, the dremel saw on this and really liked it. Much less dust, no chipping of the edge of the panel and beautiful, controlled cuts. I always use a fence to cut a straight line with electric hand saws. Too much torque to control makes for a crooked line without the fence.
Here is the lay up:
Now the set up for cutting:
and the finished cut out panel.
Next, I will start the epoxy and varnish process to seal all the panel.
