Brittle Cedar

If it breaks it breaks. Today we bent the wood on the deck beam lamination jig but one inner lamination broke right at the spot of the middle dowel. Clara made a new one in what seemed like under a minute!

The wood seemed spotless otherwise so we count it off as just a little bad luck. She had already glued an outer lip on the coaming and proceeded to laminate a Masik from three planks of Spruce/Gran. To top it off we made a little shelf experiment, mostly to fiddle about with the chisel, hammer and hand-held circular saw.

Note to self: make smoother jigs in the future. Maybe skip dowels, they make marks in the wood anyway.
