Bead and Cove

I setup my router to cut the bead and cove on the strips. I cut the bead first because the cove is weak and would have gotten broken going through the router the second time.
I was amazed at how fast I was able to cut the bead and cove on all the strips, about five hours including an hour of setup.

With the strips done, I have finished phase 1 of the canoe. The second phase is to put the strips on the mold and fair the hull. The third phase is to put the fiberglass on both sides of the canoe and the fourth and final phase is to finish the canoe with the rub rails, middle thwart and deck.

I have matched the first 13 strips on both sides of the canoe for a better look. I have set a side another 24 strips for the turning of the bilge. These strips all have similar color and will complement the accent strips.
