Transom finished

I have finished cutting out the inner transom and gluing the two parts together. Quite pleased with the results so far.

I have started posting some details of this construction on the Woodenboat forum. I suppose I should just do one or the other really. But they prefer all the technical detail over there.

Transoms glued, always a mucky stage. Just squeezed enough for the glue to ooze out, but not so hard that all the glue is squeezed out.

Finished transom, with a timber ledge clamped in place. When this is glued it will form a landing for the bottom of the boat to be screwed to. when all is finished, the curve of the outer transom will be cut to match the inner.
