Play Hard, Work Hard!

We needed the keelson to be 17' long, and 1 1/2" thick, so we had to make it out of 6 pieces of White Oak wood.  We used epoxy to glue the scarphes together.  Our shop dog, Spirit, photobombed this picture.

In both of these photos, we were gluing the two pieces together to get the right thickness.  We scored the wood with a box knife so the epoxy could soak into the wood and make the glue joint stronger.
We finished the oars for skiff #1 FINALLY.  The wider stripes indicate the longer oars.
