side decks are laminated with alternating strips of mahogany and sitka
The back , center and front decks are laminated with mahogany and
cyprus . The strips were originally edge nailed with iron nails . I
used stainless steel nails .
A piece of white oak stem bent to replace the combing . I bent it over
my knee after steaming it and held it in position with pipe clamps for
a few days to hold its shape .
