To start with, then, a block of hard balsa (or obeche or similar wood) 2 x 21/2 x 3 ins. is needed. Trace on this the "back view" of the bow block and saw straight through. Mark on the resulting tapered block the profile and saw again. Now mark the top and bottom "triangles" and a centre line down the front face, and carefully saw to shape. Sand to a reasonable finish, then mark on the 1/8 in. rebates to receive the side planks. Cut or chisel these, then carefully compare the block with the drawing.
Cut the two side panels from medium1/8 in. balsa, mark on the inside of each the bulkhead positions, and double cement the bow joints
