How to Build the TotalBoat: Episode 5 – Fitting the Transom Planks Together

Welcome back to our series with Louis Sauzedde where we are building the TotalBoat as a work skiff in Lou’s workshop. In Episode 5, Lou and Andrew show us how they use a guide to drill and connect the two large white oak planks that make the transom of the TotalBoat work skiff. As you might expect, Lou has some pretty great tricks for lining up the holes and drilling straight into the thick, white oak planks. If they don’t line up exactly right, he can add those planks to the woodpile for the upcoming winter, so he wants to be certain there are no mistakes.

  1. I am enjoying this series very much. Learning several things even though I have worked with wood for years.
