|From WoodenBoat No. 192 (Sept/Oct 2006)|
- From cut offs discarded from the rudder head, 3/4" cherry was cut to 1" height in my case and then cut to 5" lengths. These cleats will be fastened to the 2 masts for halyards ( or halliards per an Englishman).
- a 9" bandsaw (with a dull blade) eventually made it through the stock to give a rough shape.
- flat and tail files, the belt sander and final hand sanding delivered the product. 45 minutes a piece?
|Rough cut lines.|
|A pair with stock for 2.|
|One of two with added turpentine for effect.|
