More sewing and on to lashing

10 Oct

Wednesday, October 9 was full of work.  Wayne and crew finished sewing the gores on the second side of the canoe.  Watch the process in this video.

Then it was on to the lashing of the gunwale pieces.  Wayne worked with student assistants Colin, Chase, and Marcus to begin the lashing process essential for securing the gunwale pieces.  Watch the process in this video.

On Thursday, October 10, the lashing work continued. Wayne carved and fitted the fore and aft thwarts. It takes a keen mind to anticipate how the ends of the canoe will later cinch together when the canoe takes its final shape, and a steady hand to get the fit right.
