Start of making the fillets - Wharram Hitia 14

In this video I start with making the fillets for the keel. First I stitch and clamp the side panels to the sternpost which were still not together. I had to use clamps, because the copper wire that I am using is too thin to keep this part together. Next time I will use thicker copper wire. After that I tighten all the stitches. Then I lightly send the areas where the fillets will be and after sanding I use the vacuum cleaner to take the dust away. Then I start to do the filleting. The straight horizontal part goes very well. The stempost part that is at an angle does not go that well, there are several bumps in the fillet. I will try to sand that smooth tomorrow. It was a good day.
