Pre-cut to the exact size specified in the patterns. No need to buy the patterns and the mold material. Save time and eliminate layout or cutting errors.

The strips are machined from clear stock Western Red Cedar. The strips are 7/8" wide by 1/4" thick in full lengths (up to 18) with bead and cove edges. For optimum color match, all strips cut from the same board are bundled together. The proper number of strips is provided for each design. Also included are the mahogany inner stem pieces which are laminated together over the stem mold.

Note - strips are also sold separately for other designs. To estimate the number of strips required, measure around the center mold in inches and multiply by 1.2 - e.g. 50" times 1.2 is an estimated 60 strips. Call for pricing.

Epoxy-Plus marine epoxy is ideal for cedar strip construction. Cures clear, never cloudy; no greasy "blush" to wash or sand off between coats; longer working time. Includes the recommended fiberglass cloth. See "Index" for prices.

Note - Epoxy-Plus marine epoxy and fiberglass cloth are also available separately for other designs. See our "Boatbuilding Supplies" catalog.
