These large pieces of iroko have been re-sawn at Matsui, a local lumber mill for use in the new stem section.
Ben is starting the laminating process for the stem section using the iroko with staggered scarph joints.
Keiji Kawashima is cutting some of the hundreds of bungs we’ll use from pieces of old teak decking (above and below). We tried to use as much of the old decking as possible for minimum waste.
