cleaning up the frames

Wednesday 30 December 2009: Took off work because it is threatening to be wet and difficult weather coming up. Drilled starter holes in the frame interiors. Then I took them out on the patio and cut them out with a saber saw. Spent the rest of the day cleaning them up with a sanding drum on the drill press and various wood rasps to clean out the insets for the keelson and deck stringers.

The frames should be more or less done, with the exception of sealing and finishing. Time to get the strongback put together and the gunwales, keelson and chines scarfed so that this thing can begin to look a bit more like a kayak.
