Lots of bandsaw action today, as we cut all the frames, the apron cheeks (more on these later), two layers of transom, and the center-plate case sides out of marine plywood. This is 12mm okume marine plywood, mind you, at about $200 a sheet, so the first two pictures represent, oh, about $1000 worth of plywood. From the stem back to about frame 5:
Oh, and we haven't used any of it yet, but we promised pictures of $400 worth of mahogany and Douglas fir. The longest board on the floor is about 16', the longest standing board is about 8'. For the mathematically impaired, there are eight boards in total - and two of those, the cheap cedar filler, were about $6 each. The others were, well, rather more.
As you can see, $400 doesn't buy that much wood. Buster mentioned how when he was a kid you could build the first floor of a house for $400!
