Good to see you getting going.  That batch of epoxy will be the first of many!   I think Im up to 30 gallons, with about 2 gallons to go before Im out.  Hope the mixer works well for you.  I tend to over pour the gardener by a gram or two on every batch

Why do I always go through so much epoxy. The kodiak is bigger but not that much. I just finished of 45 gallons, I love my epoxy pump it saves soooooo much time!!!!!

Randy ... what video editing software are you using?

Im just using the iMovie software on my iPhone. Its incredibly easy! Im sure there are similar apps for other platforms. Ive done video editing over the years and I can hardly believe how simple its become.

Im hoping to keep it under 30 but its not like Ill switch to Elmers Glue if it takes more. Youre doing some pretty cool features on yours that takes some extra glue Im guessing. Im in La Pine for a couple days - Wish i could drop by and see your progress!

Ill be cutting the bow stem and sheer shelves this weekend. Question. I have access to two very nice and sentimental pieces of wood that would be great for the stem. One is a 4x6 rough cut ponderosa beam from the original cabin my grandfather built in 1960, since torn down. Knot-free, solid, and straight. The other is a gorgeous tight/straight grain old growth Douglas fir beam Ive used in various places for 30 years - kids swing for a while, then as a porch post. its more weathered then the ponderosa but is solid. Would the Ponderosa be okay for the stem? Ill plane it down to ensure its solid. Id love to say Ive got a piece of Grandpas cabin in my boat. I know the Doug fir is probably better though.

My first effort at scarfing yesterday. I wont be able to glue today because I dont have my fiberglass additives yet, but I should be able to work on some other parts. The plywood is all cut to width, the stem is done and the shop organization continues as I go.

Well, my first bonehead move of the build, the first of a few Im sure. I was finishing up scarfing and realized the two half-sheets of plywood that needed scarfing were not 3/8! They were 1/2. Wasted sheet. Hopefully there will be opportunity to use the 1/2 as scrap of or for other parts.

Those scarfs look perfect enough.  Great work!   One thin I discovered was it was easier to make all the scarfs just right when I put an extra sheet on the bottom of the stack to sacrifice.  Makes it easier for me to get the first sheet I need,  to a better scarf.  Your doing a good job

There will be PLENTY of need for that 3/8" wood later :) ...

I usually just use a narrow, full-width, piece of scrap under the bottom sheet when milling the scarfs ... say 48" wide by 14" to 16" wide.  You can re-use this piece on subsequent scarfing work - just line up the previously-cut scarf with the scarf lines on the edges of the to-be scarfed wood on top.  It'll still help guide that power hand planer.
