No, the cleats were made with the correct angles to fit in the corners and were made bigger so I could round the outside corners with a bigger radius. I just started rounding them with a 18" belt sander and 80 grit belt. Takes a lot of material off fast. I don't have a squared off corner and still have enough cleat to offer support.pee wee wrote: ↑Thu Nov 24, 2022 8:52 amIf you're referring to how boxy the cleats are, why not trim them up to taste? It would have been easier to shape them before gluing, but some careful work with a chisel and small plane would put a bevel on the corners. My first thought was a router with an offset base, but you probably don't have one and I'm not sure that would do any better. Good to see you're making some real progress on the Bayou City Boat!
The port side before any sanding, note how squared it is.
After playing with that for a while I decided I needed to get the dash fitted and glued in. Have today at a low 71 degs then next 2 days wet with highs in low 60s. So the two days of low temps the dash can set up and cure.
