Here is the chine strip. This one is a half inch wide to allow for a pretty soft rail in front of the board. The notch in the top of the rib is for a longitudinal stringer for additional deck support and gluing area.
The starter rail strip is glued on and clamped with PVC clamps. Plastic does have its uses.
Here is the tail block all cut and ready to reglue. It is alternating pine and redwood.
So here is the tail block reglued in a little wavy pattern. When the block gets shaped with top and bottom curved surfaces, the redwood rectangles will become curved like beans and should make a pretty cool pattern. At least I hope!
