I took a day off from epoxy and worked on making the stem. I'm making this from 4 laminates because I've run out of 38mm thick fir!
The first two are as per the design, the top laminate will be made using 25mm with a small portion bonded on where the thickness is 38mm.
shaping these was actually quite an enjoyable task (and sweaty). I sharpened my planes up before i started and the wood was beautifully workable. I've ended up with a large bag of shavings and I'm not done yet
I hope to finish all the laminates tomorrow and get it bonded up before the end of the day.
First 2 Stem laminates.
As they'll be when bonded.
