Once I had all the pieces ready, the transom cut out, and the gussets made, it was time to try out the West System Epoxy as an adhesive.

Mom and Dad were in town visiting, so Dad helped me line up all of the frame pieces and goop them up with epoxy. We used ringed nails to hold the pieces together. By the end of the day, we had all of the frame pieces glued together.

Proudly displaying our work.

Almost ready for mounting on the frame jig.
