More transom sanding. More coffee.

So, WHY do I keep sanding this thing at 5:00 in the morning? Partly, because the mahogany wood dust is worth its weight in gold as a thickening agent for epoxy.

That, and I also just need the coffee.

The curved side pieces on the transom frame are, (or rather, were), a bit thicker than the rest of the frame. It would've been fine to leave them that way. However, I decided to sand them down flush with the rest of the frame, and collect the wood dust in the process. It will certainly be needed as I assemble more Zip parts.

Why a sanding block instead of a power sander? Because the power sander blows this wood dust everywhere.

Sweep it up with a brush...

Scoop it up with a squeegee...

...and collect it for future use.

Almost there.
