Now planeing and thicknessing the top plank

Now that the plank had been cut out of the mahogany board it was time to plane the plank down to its witness pencil marks

The apprentice hard at work getting his first taste of doing this job.

After he had planed the edges down to the witness marks, it was time for him to start to plane the faces of the planks to get rid of the saw mills cutting marks.

About half way done on the first side just about 6 feet left to do on this side before turning it over to do the other side.

Almost done on the first side

Making a start on the other side. So next week we will be able to start to fit the plank on the dinghy
