« Part 7: Trimming and sanding Part 8 of Jayne's Rowboat Rocker series no next part

This is the last blog entry for this project. I tied up all the loose ends by adding a seat, finishing trim, adding the rocker base and fixing a mistake. First the seat…

I made a few slips making the seat frame, but after some time sanding that cleaned up ok. Next the trim for the transom. A few small boards and some roundover and that was done.

Finally, the slip up. I had made a big slip with the router while truing up the edges of the rails and this is the patch I made to fix it. From a normal distance, it’s not even noticeable.

As for the rocker base, well, see the finished pics here href="">Click for details

All in all, it was a fun project that sent me a couple of curveballs and took way to long to complete. But I’m glad I built it and so is Jayne. Now I need to start thinking about what to make for number five. He’s due to arrive in February, so I still have some time.

Boat looks great! Now for next Christmas you can add her name to the back in scoll sawed letters.

OK, that’s pretty cool. I’m going to have to save this one since I’ve got a baby due in March and, at some point, this might be a neat project for them.

As for your slip up, I had to look at the picture for a while to find it, so you definitely did a good job of disguising it.
