Yes my woodworking cave smells lovely of wood, burnt plywood (if I am sanding or miling it) and glue and of freshly washed clothes if the washer and dryer are in use ....Lavender.

Today is nailday ..... hehe .... not fingernails ....
First you have to drill a lot of holes .... too many for my liking!
Then each one needs a 1x10 nail .... I will build in 1/6 scale the next time!!!!



After that you have to hammer in all of them a little bit .... if not they will fall out!!!



Then you can use your muscles to get the nails in! No need to take care of anything .... all in they go asap.



All hammered in and with the help of a steel needle (3mm dia. and no point) you can hammer in the nailhead into the planks.



Sanded it down a little bit. Should one nailhead be still to high hammer it in a little bit more.



The downside of it .... you can't do much more in one go before going nuts! %%
I will do it plank after plank or just in small sections in the future.
So my friends ... thats all for today!  ok2

You are all too funny!!! :}

Today I thought why not glueing on the plank and nail it to the hull in one go .... it would safe all the work with the clamp!!
I've done it and it works very well!!!





The last plank was one on the bow which is normaly tricky for the clamps as they do not work well there.
No problem! With just one clamp and the nails the plank is held firmly in place!

Being quite thin, I would have though that three nails in each frame would be enough to hold the plank in place especially as the wood is new and the curve is not extreme. It will save you loads of time Danielle.
