Took off the string and rubber bands and the wooden tube I made last night was just right.
Planed off the ridges and made it 8-sided.
Then I plugged the heel and the head to make them solid for about 6" at the bottom, and 8" at the top. A 1/2" square tenon was cut in the heel for the mast step.
The head is the same as the fore mast head except for a slightly increased rake angle. The head tenon was cut and the fit of the cap checked. The doubling was squared and the taper for the hounds cut in.
Then I rounded the mast between the base that stays 8 sided up to about 2" above the deck; to the trestle-trees; and attached the hounds just like the fore mast - glued and pinned with two 1/16" brass rods.
I assembled the cross-trees and trestle-trees, glued and pinned; checked for fit
Finally, the bottom of the mast was painted cream and the head flat black.
now has two sticks.
Now to figure out what to make the bowsprit out of.
