Companionway Hood & Slide | Frame Assembly

It was time to permanently assemble the companionway hood and slide frames.

I did the slide first. Here is the frame glued and screwed together and clamped up square on the bench.

Here I am checking the slide for squareness, using an engineer's square.

All is well.

This is what the corner joints look like, fastened with 8 gauge bronze wood screws.

I had previously removed the hood from the cabin roof and refitted the temporary
 support brace, and now I screwed and glued it together.

Here it is on a table curing.

And here I am checking the hood frame for squareness.

Again, all is well.

This is fun!
