I love to have a project and right now I have a meaty one – the thwart.
Readers will remember that I went down to the woodyard to negotiate a new thwart.
Anyway this is what my buddy, the wood dude, came up with.
I drill and soak in teak oil.
I stand outside in the sun. I sand, oil and watch.
So, I feel this thwart project will keep me going until the end of 2015. I have to varnish, refine hole placing and finally bolt onto the boat. So much pleasure.
I like big washers
