Finally the bottom plate and bulkhead zero (bow) were cut today at my friend’s Marc Elite Woodwork shop. Once the files were loaded into the machine it took a mere ten minutes per sheet. The results are of course extremely precise.

I dread having to scarf those two large planks to form the bottom plate. The bulkhead needs a lot of filing because the stringers come at an angle and I want maximum contact for the epoxy. We added another doubler to add strength to the bow.
