Pintail noserider I finished this AM, and 10ft glider I started tonight.
started this project about a week ago and full into it. Have my shape roughed out with the planer. Need to finish sand. It took 13 pieces of redwood to get my 20.5 inch width. The length is 9’ x15.75 x 14 tail. Next is to break apart and chamber. All in good fun.
WOW!! dude that's amazing! how are you planning on breaking it apart without damaging anything?
One method is to screw the inside core together then lightly glue the outer boards that will form the rail line. Work a putty knife blade into the the glued outer boards they should open up then when the screws are exposed break out the screw gun and have at it. Learned that from a master shaper of chambered Balsa Boards in France.
I don’t recall what glue he used. Maybe others will chime in.
When I glued up the wood I only spot glued so I would be able to break apart easier. 4 or 5 dabs per board. There is a little separation already happening on a couple boards already but it’s not bothering me much. Knowing what I know now I should have marked my plan shape before I glued to be more specific on where to put the glue to hold better.regarding the breaking apart I will fit a chisel into the seems and use a rubber mallet to separate. Hopefully that goes well.
fantastic! reminds me of an Eagle. great shape.
9-0 pig I really need to finish up.
Can’t overdo the spot glues, if it does come apart, just reglue.
Occasionally I’ll get one that doesn’t want to come apart, a long bar clamp along the edge for leverage, ease it back and forth and it will go.
Finished up a month in Portugal shaping at Wavegliders in Ericeria, here is a couple of the 30
Jim are you enjoying Portugal?
