Fishing Tips

Create a Fishing Boat using Cabinet Table Saws

A boat is perhaps one of the key tools for any fishing person because it serves them in various ways. They enable the fishing people in sailing over the waters as they collect the fish. Space for storage of the fish collected is also provided by the same boat. Most boats are portal in that they can be carried by the user from one place to another in search of waters may be to quench their thirst of experiencing what nature provides or for fishing. However, have you ever taken your time in learning how to build a boat? And if that case is true, have you managed to come up with a boat? Do not worry since you are going to learn how to built a fishing boat using various instruments including a cabinet table saw (

After putting together all the necessary equipment for building a boat the real construction follows. First of all, set a cabinet table saw of your choice in a flat place to keep it in a stable state in order to avoid unnecessary destruction while working. Place one piece of plywood one after the other on top of the cabinet table saws working surface, cutting them in pieces measuring 4×8×1/8 inches. Do not be disturbed because the cabinet saw contains a sliding surface the is graduated with measurements that will enable you cut the plywood by following the correct measurements. After cutting them, attach them using thin nails upon its edges.

Since the top surface of the cabinet table saw is wide enough to offer support for the joint plywood, start measuring using the meter gauge fitted on the table saw while marking. Draw vertical lines measuring 12 by 8 inches along then plywood which are lines that will guide you while marking the measurements size of your boat. Using a batten, draw smooth curves that gives the outline of your boat.

The above-joined plywood panels measuring 8 inches produces 12 panels covering the outer side of the boat. Note that the 12 panels should be put in pairs, with each side taking 3 panels. The panels are then joined using joint bolts or any other joining device. An overlap allowance of 1 inch is recommended when fitting the panels for the purposes of giving it a more desirable V-shape bottom base to the boat.

While the measured plywood is still on top of the cabinet saw, cut precisely ensuring the saws of the cabinet slide smoothly along the measured panels. The cabinet table saws blades are adjustable and will produce nice curved pieces. If the collecting dust box of the cabinet is full, empty it before continuing. Use a rasp used in woodworking in smoothing the cut pieces.

Finally join the panels together without forgetting to refer to the above-mentioned steps. Use the driller that is mounted on the cabinet saw to make fine holes for inserting joining bolts to strengthen the boat. You can also use copper wires to stitch the panels more affecting along its joints from top to bottom. Cover the outer side of the boat using suitable fiberglass and epoxy and leave your boat to dry up.
