Making the new shaft log for Yacht Norma

Marked out the piece of green oak and the chainsawed the piece off the log, now comes the fun bit planning down the piece to the correct size.

The piece I got for the job comes from the centre of the tree so the grain pattern is good and tight.

Marking out the faces of the new log then getting ready to saw the surplus off 

The surplus now removed and the new shaft log turned over ready to mark off rib positions and the curve the bottom to fit the hog.
