Model Boatbuilding – Stem rabbets


Our Patreon member Tim Ehrich got cracking on his Forest and Stream model, skiff, got’er done and has moved onto challenging himself with a Manticus Peapod model, the lines of which he got from John Garder’s book “Building Small Classic Craft”. Tim is now faced with the challenge of trying to work up construction details at a small scale.

I though I would help out as best I can by offering up this little demonstration of how I might approach chopping a stem rabbet at such a small scale. Spoiler alert – not much different than at full scale.

We’ll also take a look at the lineup of models that led to the Forest and Stream model boat design.
