It's been a hell of schedule getting this new site organised and the mast timber sorted and ready for machining the scarphs, the timbers are 38 feet long! Well the jig was made for the router and the 12:1 ratio slide made for the router and its jig!

First the cuts were rough sawn with a circular saw, fitted into the slide. clamped and then the router milled off the saw cuts and made a perfect wedge !

The gluing clamping boards and bolts will be made next and then the first two scarphs glued up !

Then one corner post will be complete ready for machining to size and the rebates and chamfer cut. Then there's three more !!
