Another day of strip planking. I've been able to work at a pace of one strip per side per hour. Today I got four strips on. I generally work one side one day and the other side another day so that each side never varies by more than 5 strips. As I go I have become more practiced and proficient.

There are many butt joints. Here I've used clamps to hold it straight until the epoxy cures.


Another butt joint. I start the process by rough filing the top of the previous course, then paint it with epoxy. I also paint the underside of the new course. Then I nail it about every one foot. Where I need to butt two pieces together I nail at closer intervals to help the strip take the curve right up to the joint.

Here's my progress so far.
