Building the TotalBoat Sport Dory – Episode 4

 

Lou is getting his hands dirty in Episode 4 as he tackles the important job of converting his table of offsets, to actual cuts on pieces of wood he is using to construct the stations for the dory. The stations will form the mold that his beautiful planks, sourced in episodes 1 and 2, will attach to, creating the hull of the TotalBoat Sport Dory. Follow along with Lou as he explains how to form the stations and his mold, and pay close attention to Lou’s special “tip” of episode 4: using nail heads to mark the lines on his boards. It’s just another ingenious trick that is from Lou’s massive stock of clever boat building tips.

We have a Q&A episode coming up quickly where Lou will get to answer many of your questions and comments. Have something to ask Lou or want to give him some feedback? Leave a comment below!

  1. Best video series I have ever seen… anywhere! Lou is a national treasure, and I’d like to buy him a beer someday! thanks to ALL involved with documenting the process, and for finding Lou!

  2. Loved the bandsaw set up. Could not follow taking off the angles from the drawing. I have used the”Rabl way” (also Glen L) to cut angles on frames or moulds. Will be very interested in seeing plank seam fitting.
    Thanks, Clark
