Having studied different lee board bracket designs in Todd Bradshaw's book I decided on the Morris style set up but with my own cabinet makers twist.
Where the cross pieces join the working faces I am adding a dovetail for extra strength.
Having prepared the parts I cut the tails.
and then marked and cut the sockets.
then I cut the end pieces to a more pleasing shape
I also made a pair of extra large buttons to hold it to the gunwales.
I then glued up the dovetails and temporarily screwed the other blocks in place before checking the position of the buttons on the hull.
I left it at that for now and the blocks will not be fully fitted until I have the bolts that the lee boards pivot on in place but you can see the idea.
I still have to round edges and finish it but I am moving on to the lee boards themselves next.
