thanks Leith

I did have a 3d printer before getting a NomadPro and the NomadPro easily blows away whay I tried to do with a 3d printer :slight_smile:

Frames 1-7 glued and ready.

All individually run on the Nomad pro. Using steamed swiss pear hence the colour change in the wood from blocks I then cut to size.

Each frame bar the smallest one took 2 hours a side, using the double sided machining capability.

Dry fitting the Transoms to the Stern post. A bit annoyed that I left Transom 4 & 5 in a wooden bowel and the wood stain has seeped into the wood on the Transoms.

I still need to sand the tabs off, the keel is complete and most of the external frames. I need to make a building jig this week and will then start gluing the frames to the keel.

The upper stern is proving problematic to CNC as I’ve snapped 3 cutters already so back to the drawing board.

This is the model I’m basing mine on, trying to match it as close as I can.

I glued more together this morning, but need to really make the building bed jig now, it shouldn’t take too long to make but I keep putting it off.
