|Very generous donation from Paul Ryban.|
|The piece was very heavy and it took a fork lift to move it.|
|Here we are laying out the pattern in order to rough cut and get rid of any excess material.|
|Marc Barto chain saws off the excess length. Its getting lighter with each cut.|
|Our volunteer, Mark Welles, cuts the curved portion of the piece. It takes a series of four passes on each side.|
|Mark making the first series of cuts while increasing the depth with each pass.|
Pounding wedges in order to break the final seem to separate the two sides.
Jenn Kuhn is pounding in the wedges.
Now we can handle the piece with more ease.
Next we cut out the mortise which will fit the forward king post of the centerboard trunk.
