In this episode, after roughing-out the starboard side Rabbet into the Stem, Leo makes a jig to transfer the measurements for the shape of the Keel Timber from the lofting floor to the boat itself. He than starts working on actually shaping the keel to its final shape, firstly using a TurboPlane wheel on a Grinder, and then switching to a good ole’fashioned Adze.  He also adds some small pieces of Purpleheart to complete the shape of the Forefoot, and makes a small book-stand for his hosts here.
