Daggerboard Shaping

Posted by Zachary Wiest in Sanding, Tools, Woodworking

I finished shaping the daggerboard today.  I used 80 grit sandpaper on the random orbit to fair the leading and trailing edges of the board.  As the layers of ply and glue sand away their lines make it easy to keep the slope even.   When I got them even I used sandpaper on a foam sanding block to further round the edges.  Next I broke out the router and rounded over all the handle edges with a 1/4″ roundover bit.  Finished up by sanding everything to 220 grit.  It is ready for epoxy and varnish.
