Week Seven: The deck (November 29 - December 5, 2010)
Work on the deck begins using 1/4 inch thick basswood sheets. Cut two large access panels on either side of the mainmast using an X-acto knife -- not as easy as I thought it would be.
Since the basswood sheets are only 6 inches wide I had to cut and shape several pieces to make the full deck.
Panels seemed to fit pretty well. We'll see how waterproof it will be.
