I'm right there with you TD. I enjoy woodworking - but I'm "5-footer". If you stay 5 feet away, it looks pretty good. But if you step closer - I'm screwed.

Still and CharlieC? The real deals.

if you have the machinery/knowledge to saw the lumber from trees/logs why didn't you quarter saw it and eliminated the cupping problem altogether,no need to alternate the boards,also cherry rots very quickly,there would have been better varieties,having said that i am impressed

Good question:
Quarter sawing is a HUGE waste of wood and very time consuming.

You actually end up with several quarter sawn pieces ( radial grain ) sawing in the plain saw method per log anyway, which gives you primarily tangential grain.. ..so you could always pick to use only those pieces if desired.

I was asked why I alternated "Crowns" I went on to explain what I was actually doing and why...and also why it probably wasn't important in this case any way.

But you are 100% correct that would and does cure 99% of the issue with cupping.

I don't as of yet own my own saw mill...my neighbor does...Its all I can do to get him to cut for me about once a year let alone get real demanding about it..

Smacky.....Good-on-ya......................Im a 6 footer...

Nice job. But now it makes me want to refinish my sole and I'm lazy. Wanna come by and show me how to do it for a few hours?

The yard finally got the engine enclosure buttoned up enough for me to install the galley sole.

So here it is....

A vast improvement over the linoleum... Total cost of new Galley sole less then 20 bucks..

Please excuse the rest of the boat...its been through heck....but I'll bring her back in time....
