Scarfing Jig

Today I worked on my boat.  The boat is in the middle of a large repair/modification.  It's a long story, but the short version is that I built a wooden boat a few years ago, used it a little, 10,000 pounds of snow broke it in half, I decided to fix it and make it longer.

This photo shows a jig that I built for cutting the scarfs in narrow wooden strips.  A "scarf" is a long tapered glue joint that is used to turn short pieces into long ones. 

Hopefully the weather will stay nice (the boat does not fit in the shop) and you will get to see more of the boat in the next couple of weeks.
