Fillets 'n Oar, Sanding and More

We were sanding the fillets on the interior of the boat.  A fillet is a bead of epoxy that fills the joint where the planks meet. 
We were gluing extra wood on to the oars in order to strengthen the looms.

After securing the seat support down we used the ShopBot to trimm off the rounded edge to make it square.  Once it is trimmed it will be glued to the bottom of the seat.

We had to fix the seat supports because it wasn't properly secured to the ShopBot table and accidently cut into the seat support.

Still sanding...
We planed the oar square to the line.
