    Stitch a Spoon...

    Post  skansand on Sun Feb 19, 2012 8:49 am





    Found this photo awhile back with no background information..... after countless times looking I noticed it looked stitched.. Googled "stitched plywood" or something and learned about "stitch n glue" kayak and boat building. .... The more I read about it the more it seems feasible for a hacker like me.. Rolling Eyes

    Someone skilled could make some VERY interesting multi-chined creations! santa

    basically template out on plywood... cut where you want seams, drill holes next to the cut-line every foot or so and zip tye back together ..... a spreader-bar on the deck holds the shape while you glue between the tyes... once glue sets-up you cut the zip-tyes and laminate the length of the seam with fiberglass tape/resin.... thats basically it. Very Happy
