Crawford's Tolman Widebody blog

Greetings fellow boat builders. Welcome to the blog for Jim Crawford's Tolman Wide Body Skiff.

I own a rather extensive wood working shop that includes among other machines, a 3-axis CNC router. I elected to make my Wide Body kit using this tool. The first thing to do (after buying the 'Tolman Alaska Skiff' book) was to create a virtual 3D 23' Tolman Skiff in CAD. Once the boat was built on the computer, I was then able to extract the variuos parts, nest them on a virtual sheet of plywood, generate maching code for the parts, and then actually cut the real deal wood parts. This technology allowed for parts, such as the bowstem, shelfs, transom, and front inner plates to be pre-beveled.
