29237RE: [Michalak] Toto build- rookie
- May 13, 2014Hi David,
I have built two Toto's - one of them at 80% size for my grandson - as my first exercise in 'stitch and tape'. I used a jigsaw for the 5mm ply, cutting a couple of mil outside the line then trimming as needed with a belt sander. Would have preferred to use a small-bladed skilsaw but my skilsaw is too big and way too heavy. I think one of the modern counter-rotating saws with small blades would be ideal.
The first Toto (the smaller one) was a bit of a struggle getting the panels pulled together - the full-size one was a lot easier. Both have turned out really well - lovely looking boats.
