Launching into planking is going to be a big and satisfying part of the project. We have been working towards this moment for a very long time. In order to make sure everything goes smoothly and is enjoyable, we need to make sure that we set ourselves up well before hand.
In this episode, we do just that. We built a planking bench for us to work on as we are going to be scarfing up full length planks. We modified a power planer to get ready for backing out planks. And, we faired out the rabbet to its final shape, making sure that the back rabbet was a fair transition to the frames and that the bottom edge was a 90 angle to the back rabbet.
All these things together will go a long way towards making sure that we have minimal snags or hiccups down the line when planking, which is coming up soon!!
And speaking of planking... This is our the last week to buy the limited edition planking t-shirts via the Bonfire link below. The proceeds from this campaign will go towards purchasing Arabella's diesel engine.
