Lake Oswego Boat off the mold

This Lake Oswego boat was built onto a mold constructed of thin “bead and cove” wood strips. The mold looks like an actual hull, but it really is just the form the actual boat is built onto. Strips of wood veneer are carefully measured and placed onto the mold and edge glued to each other to create the hull. The mold is waxed before the veneers are placed so that once the edge glue dries the hull can be easily removed from the mold. Shown are Instructor Jesse Long with students Chris Lindstam, Galen Brake, Jessiah Worley, Drew Larson, Lafayette Duvall. Nice work!
