Oars step 2

Tonight I glued up the first two sticks of oar number one with liberal amounts of Titebond 2 glue. Hopefully the cats don’t walk through it and get glue everywhere. Tomorrow I’ll laminate on the third stick and then it will be ready for carving, shaping and sanding. This weekend is going to be warm again so I should be able to cut out oar number two. Cutting with the jig saw does not give the smoothest cut. It might also be time for a new blade. Wonder if my father-in-law has a band saw. If not it just means a little more work to smooth things out with the block plane and sander.
