Well, back from a sailing week in Greece, now it looks like we're ready to go. The first sawdust was produced in the morning of October 19th, 2013. Not much: we worked about 3 hours on the "flat out table" which is not yet complete... Here's a view of the "shipyard" minutes before the real start:
On the left is the plywood stack; on the far left there are the particle board sheets and the sawhorses, on the far right, on the floor, are some 2-by-4 (4.5x9 cm) planks, each 15' (4.5 m) long.
Here I am sawing to length one of the planks which will be butt blocked to a full length one to make the 20' (6m) girders for the flat out table.
