The rough fitting of the wood is competed, now it is time to make everything fit better and more smoothly.
The walls and lower cabinet are competed but the cabinet above the sink is still awaiting construction.
I trimmed the top of the table to make the countertop fit better in there and also rounded all the corners of the wood. Nothing is more dangerous in a boat than a sharp corner! Having a rounded edge means that if you bump into the wood while underway, you won’t stab yourself!
The fiddleblock for the shelf was an inspiration from Maddie. She wanted it to “swoop out of nothing” and then I set a random diagonal offcut on the shelf. Maddie was walking by the head and loved the look of the diagonal piece of wood!
The fiddleblock was then cut out of Cryptomeria and fastened to the edge of the shelf. I made sure that the blonde parts of the wood met up at the edge of the shelf so that the fiddleblock would then “emerge” from the blonde and return to the red look of the rest of the head.
