Making parts for a really big boat is like making a great big three-dimensional sculpture. This is a replacement part for the bow of an enormous wooden fish scow.
Start by chopping the chunk of wood roughly to length with the good ol' indoor electric chainsaw:
Next is a two-man job, using the shipsaw bandsaw to cut the rolling bevels. One guy steers the wood through the cut while the other mans the handwheel to crank in the changes of angle along the way.
After using the chainsaw again to cut kerfs down through the waste to make it easier to see where we're headed, it's time to break out the adze and get to workin' old-school, yo!
We return to the 21st century now as the power plane comes out for the last few licks down to size.
And here it is, a complex yet graceful shape, ready to take to the shipyard for the final fitting in place.
