x.y.z. points and why?

Layout and rough carvings for the beginnings of a pepperwood or bay laurel rounding plane

It’s hard to keep within the lines, I went over, but was able to save the piece by adding a filler tenon in the throat and mouth.

The fascination I have with wooden boat craft, as seen in current writings:

From Oren Kredo an, interesting article in today's New York Times
Finding an Answer to Rough Seas 

From Maria Moyer another interesting article on the non-digital
The Case for working with your hands

Of Course two books further help explain the Joy of building, studios and boats - Michael Pollen’s  “A Place Of My Own” and Michael Ruhlman’s “ Wooden Boats”
