Stern Post

Today, there were multiple projects going on. Some people were working on putting the stern post in place. This is a piece of wood that branches off of the keel. It involved drilling holes for the bolts.

Others were working on making frames that go on the boat. They had to run the wood sections through a thickness plane to make them even. The thickness plane cuts off the top of the wood that is run through it.

The rest of us were working on oars. Some oars are being cut and shaved to length, and some are being cut out of blocks of wood.
