Now that really dresses up those steps. My Admirable thinks I should do something like that for our 404. What kind of wood did you use?

The risers are mahogany faced plywood, the lighter strip is maple. The threads I do not know. It's some kind of teak or maybe cherry.

Good God man slow down, I'll never be able to catch up to you...Your work is great, How do you keep the smell of the glass work out of house, I'm working in a shed at my winter over marina and just the smell of me when I come home kills everyone in the house..

The platform I've been working on is all glassed up, I'm going to start working on the install of dinghy cradles I made and cleats. here's a link to it..

Ha I had the same problem. They made drop down to my skivvies and jump in the shower. I found what helped is a full tyvek suit with hood. You need to make sure you are using the right mask. You should not smell the Oder at all. Also lots of rubber gloves and leave the shoes outside. I work mostly at night after the kids went to bed.

My little work shop. Last year it was my little chemical hut.

Wait till you summer when you are doing this your neighbors will love you.

Well switching over to the next project. Built in cabinets for the TV, etc., I found this idea online for a 3227. Both are a little different layout.

The electric cabinet will be tied in but the cabinets will slide in the opens so that they can be removed for access.

Of course noting square. The top piece squares out the bow in the wall and the fact the window is pitched to aft of the boat (1-1/2")The window shaded will drop down and hide this.

Are those the engine room vents? And you're blocking off the engine room from them? At least that's what it looks as if is happening there.
Thanks
