In this video you can see that I started with cleaning up and reorganising of the workspace. Change the position of the lights, setup of the table, taped some cables on the floor so I don't trip over it and some other things. I put 2 of the drawings on the wall so I don't have to bend over to look at the floor for measurements. Then I spend most of the day getting used to the power tools that I have (a sander, a jigsaw, planer and drill). I am a novice builder, and actually novice DIY, so I have to learn a lot. Made some 19mmx32mm battens from the rough oregon pine.

If you don't mind a suggestion, another portable power tool that is good to have is a router. This being a catamaran you'll need 2, 4 or more copies of the same piece, so what I do is cut one and plane/sand it to perfection, then use it as a template for the rest. You get a couple of copying router bits, you cut another piece roughly to the line with a jigsaw and you finally use your router to get a perfect copy of your original piece. This will work well with station frames, hull parts (there will be 4 of each), coach sides, etc. Saves a lot of labour.

Hello Ricardo, of course I don't mind, I am super happy to receive suggestions like yours. I have never heard of a router. I am going to look up information about it tomorrow. Thank you very much for your suggestion.  :)
