St. Jacques Log 29 Jun 17 Sprit!

29 Jun 17:

Finally got a sprit shaped. We took a 1 1/2 inch blank and eight sided it on the table saw. Flipped the spar jig and turned it into a spar bench. Used our new Stanley Number 52 spokeshave to take the edges down to round.

Cut a line for a shoulder with a dovetail saw. Roughed out the inner edge of the shoulder with a quarter round file. Cut a 1/4 inch taper about 2 feet back.

4 sided taper for the pins on ends, rasped off the excess to a rough round shape

Sanded 120 grit with the random orbital sander then hand sanded.

TotalBoat Wood Sealer then Gleam Marine Spar Varnish.

Log of St. Jacques.
