Thank you Dan. It looks ok to me till I take a photo of it and see what crap it really looks like.

I made 4 1/2" sized double blocks for the throat halyards. I forgot to take the camera out into the oven, I mean shop, but basically the set up is the same except this time I spent more time shaping them on the stick which made them a lot easier to finish up after they're cut off.

The dividers and dowel slices were glued to both sides and a 1/32" bass sheet strip is glued in between - ta-da! double blocks. I need one more of these only with working sheaves for the main sheet. She didn't have jeers, so I won't need a block there, she only had a sling, and that was replaced with chain just before she left for Europe.

The other working blocks are for the braces. They're all 3/8" singles and I'll need 8 of those.
