Lots of Planing

Today in the Shallop Project, the wood workers were planing the mast. They had to take the edges off to make it round so its easier for the sails to rise up and down. In order to make it wider, they had to mark lines on it so they knew when to stop planing. Another thing that was being planed was an oar, to make it was nice and smooth. They had to mark it to get it right. Lastly, the wood workers are marking the sprit to make it 8-sided and then rounded. In the rope work group, they are finishing the worming, serving, and parceling. They are trying to finish and start all of the grommets left for them to do for the boat.
