Rigging the Boom

I've begun rigging the boom.

The boom is round…

The hardware for the reefing lines (cheek blocks and cleats) are flat…

Solution: Craft mounting pads/blocks contoured (a spindle sander is a nice tool to have) to fit the boom. These are for the cheek blocks.

The mahogany pads/blocks will be epoxied to the boom (which will be sanded to bare wood where the pads/blocks go), sanded and varnished. The hardware will be screwed to the pad and boom.
