Make a Boat With Shelving

In this instructable i will be able to show you ways to form a wooden boat with shelving.

The materials you’ll need will be: roll of paper , 1/2 of a sheet of 3/8 inch beaded oak plywood, 1/2 of a sheet of 1/4 inch oak plywood that’s finished on each side , 1/2 of a sheet of 1/2 inch birch plywood,10ft of 3/4 inch in oak, wood glue, staples, nails, and a stain of your choice.

The tools you’ll got to use during this project may be a table saw, a band saw, a jig saw, a sander, a belt sander, a miter saw, a drill, clamps, a staple gun, and a finish nailer.

Step 1: Creating Your Pattern

For this step you’ll need your sheet of paper . I began by rolling of about 6 ft long of paper out and that i cut it about 6 ft long, I then found the middle of the development paper, Next I got a bit of scrap ply wood I had laying around my shop and used that to make the bend for the pattern. I then copied that side onto the opposite side of the pattern. Then I cut out the pattern. Now you’re able to make the rear panel.

Step 2: Making the Back Panel

Next I ripped my 1/4 inch and 1/2 inch plywood right down to 24inches wide, I then glued those two pieces together to make the rear of the boat, let that dry. I then marked on the rear side of the shelf where I wanted to put the shelving because it’s easier to mark where you would like your shelf when your piece is square. Shelf locations are your own preferences, I marked my shelves at, from bottom to top, 12″, 23 1/2″, 35″, 46 3/4″. Next take your pattern and align that with the piece that you simply have just glued together and trace round the fringe of the pattern, then cut the pattern that you simply have traced out, after i cut the rear piece out I sanded the sides to urge obviate all of the saw marks. I then sanded the front and back of the panel so I did not have to travel back and sand them after I put the shelving in because it’s easier.

Step 3: Adding the Shelving

Rip your shelves down, bottom shelf is 8″ wide, other shelves 6 1/2″ wide (you can make the shelves whatever size you want). Mark the shelf length on rock bottom panel because the angle will change with each shelf, mine are: Bottom shelf 14 degrees, 4th shelf 7 degrees, 3rd shelf 0 degrees, 2nd shelf 6 degrees, 1st shelf 13 degrees. Marking the shelves on rock bottom panel will offer you your angle. After I got all of my shelves stop I sanded all of the shelves. Next I continued my lines that we drew earlier on the side of the rear panel so i might know where to align the shelves, I then pre drilled holes through the rear panel where my shelves are connecting too. I used 1 5/8″ screws to lock the shelves to the rear panel. I then aligned the shelf with the lines on the side of the rear panel then clamped them down so I could screw them in from the rear you’ll also run a bead of wood glue across the rear of the shelf before you screw them in but confirm the glue doesn’t run out the edges of the board because once you attend stain it the glued area won’t accept the stain. Continue doing that for all of your shelves. Next you’ll cut your bow piece, The bow piece is 7 1/4″ x 1 1/2″ with a 28 degree angle creating a triangle piece, now screw you bow piece at the highest so your side panels will have something to attach too. Now your Boat is shelved and prepared for the side panels.

Step 4: Adding Side Panels

Now take your sheet of 1/4″ ply wood and rip two pieces that are 8″ wide, this may make your side panels. Next mark your panels to length. I marked mine by clamping the front edge flush with the bow piece then marking rock bottom to length, do this with both panels. Once I got both of my panels move length I sanded the side that was getting to face the shelves because it’s easier to travel ahead and sand it. Next you’re getting to want to nail and glue your side panels on. I used 1/4″ x 1″ staples, again confirm you do not get glue on any areas that you simply want to stain. I nailed my side panels on by stapling and gluing the front to the bow, then I put wood glue on all of the ends of the shelves then nailed the panels on to the shelves, do this for each side . Then putty and sand all of your nail holes. Now you’re ready for your top rail pieces.

Step 5: Adding Your Rail Pieces

This step is all custom to what you would like this is often just what I did. I started by ripping strips that were 3/8″ x 3/4″. I made spacers and placed them about every shelf then an extended strip at the highest , next I took my other piece that I cut out and roughly cut it to size by putting it on the surface of the boat then marking rock bottom . I did that for the within rail piece too. If your pieces don’t fit perfectly thats fine, we’ll hide all of the ends once we make the trim pieces within the next step. Before you set your rail pieces on make certain you sand them. Start by nailing and glueing your spacers on, then pin nail and glue your in side and out side pieces, make certain to use many clamps. Let that found out over night. Once that’s dry remove you clamps and sand the highest of the rail with a belt sander to form the highest pieces are even, then return and putty all cracks and nail holes. After the putty drys return with a finish sander to sand the surplus putty off and to smooth everything down. undergo an equivalent steps to finish the opposite side rail. Now you’re able to make your trim pieces.

Step 6: Adding Your Trim Pieces

You can make your trim pieces how ever you would like them to seem , the trim pieces are only for decoration and to hide up the tops and bottoms of your rail pieces, that being said your trim pieces are completely custom to you. I made my top trim piece sort of a triangle figure with an arched bottom piece to offer it some decoration. to form my bottom piece I roughly drew an ornamental piece that might cover the ends of my rail pieces. I nailed and glued both of these pieces on then puttied the nail holes and went back and sanded the putty off. then I routed the sides of my top and bottom trim piece to around the edge off to offer it some more decoration. then I sanded the whole boat once more to prep it to be stained.
