Not to get off track, but how did you bend the mahogany for your cap rail on the Mayflower?

Hello Shuttlebuggy, she is not the Mayflower, she is the Santa Maria, as for bending the cap rail, that was a pain in the butt, lots of soaking and slow heat bending, just a little bit at the time and soaking again than bending again.

A real good looking start with your model, and I am happy for you, that the frame cutting (as I know by hand) had finaly an end.
.....i am sitting in the first row and I will not leave my chair
Thanks Uwe,although the frame cutting is done I have more cutting ahead like,stern plate,stern framing ,upper deck framing etc.

So it is not getting boring my friend......maybe a scroll saw like Proxxon DSH, Hegner or Pegas could help...... ;)
Hello Uwe, I have a scroll saw, bought it a month ago, I just need to practice on it, I keep breaking the blades, never used one before, for now, my handsaw much more accurate since I have used them since age 6 or 7.:);)
