thanks all :)
and apologies that i sometimes post after after my strict regiment of medicine while creating! :?

anyway, as of now it looks like this... it's starting to make me super excited to get it out there! (finally looking like something)
Image

spent A LOT of time tonite with wood filler on my crappy kerfs & ...ACK!... not finished with that yet, but almost! ....still just happy to be done with that tightest curve!
Image

also did some work on galley pieces, but got a bit lazy with the picture taking and more into the drilling, so that's that.
Image

nite all
:)

Very nice Kent!

You ought to be proud of what you've accomplished. Looks like you're giving that Kreg pocket screw tool a workout.

Take care,
Tom

happy... um... what is this? ...wednesday?

happy wednesday all! tomorrow is september already! :shock: :?

got the back half of my inner ceiling skin glued up and trimmed down at the galley hatch point last nite...
Image

also pretty much finished filling in all my kerfing lines at the front... which took 2 full containers of minwax filler... that stuff is a little pricey at about $11 a shot, but man it seems stronger than the wood itself... regular spackle & other fillers i've used in the past don't even compare...
Image
Image

also received my plastic living hinge from monroe...
Image

FIFTY FEET OF IT!!! AHHHHHHH!!!

thanks to all for comments, etc... and tom, regarding the kreg jig... YESSSS... i freaking LOVE that thing!

Think I used my Kreg jig too much...does that make me an addict? But I'd be hard pressed to live with out it.
