A curved linden branch is roughly carved into a keel horn.
Carpentry Z-lug / tongue and groove joint to a keel-horn has begun.
And in close-up.
The raw-shaped keel horn is mounted for center marking with plumb-bob from the reference wire at the ceiling.
The almost finished keel horn mounted for directional control.
The joint between the horn and the bottom plank is almost complete.
The boat is being taken down from the berth, at the same time it is being moved forward in the hall.
There must be room for the railing horn in height. And, the space aft of the boat is to be used for other purposes.
The boat has now got its last place in the workshop and set up after reference wire in the cieling.
The gunwale-horn is set up for marking.
Stævnklodsens elongation is cut to for acting as a tongue in a tongue and groove joint with rails horn.
It is unclear from how the horn has been: a natural branch on the trunk of the bow block, or as here, attached.
The railing horn is roughly shaped and the groove finished.
The end joint against the bow block is fine-tuned.
The tongue and groove assembly is about to be in place. Some of the underside of the tongue must be removed and glued.
The last adjustments of the assembly. The keel horn is secured with a pair of temporary dowels.
The surface of the horn is completed.
Cut out to the outer locking plate in the keel horn.
Cutting of nail hole to secure the outer locking plate.
The outer locking plate is pre-assembled aft.
Measure up to the outer locking plate for.
In the gunwale-horn there is now a rectangular hole and in the keel horn a similar carved hole.
These are corrected in relation to each other.
The outer locking plate is inserted and holes are made for the locking pins. The keel horn is not yet glued. To mount the locking plate, the keel horn must be removed and the locking plate pushed all the way up into the gunwale horn before the keel horn is mounted again and the locking plate is pushed down again.
The outer locking plate is now in place. Now the keel horn can be glued to the bottom plank and all four locking pins can be mounted.
