Another Shrike in Spain

Post by nickcrowhurst » Wed Aug 15, 2018 12:07 pm

Ariel in Spain has just completed his very pretty Shrike. He has installed the optional three-part foredeck, rather than using our standard single sheet of 3 mm plywood. Sometimes builders do this because they are only able to source thicker plywood that is unable to bend to the complex shape required, and sometimes the builder just wants a very high knee position. We have the plans for this 3-piece deck and they are available on request, but we know of only two others who have opted for this.
