From Pete Heading:

'A quiet day in the shed - a group of five of us mostly playing with oars. All four looms are  now at the sixteen sided stage and ready for a quick swipe with  a plane and then rounding over with sand paper. Blade tips are capped and with some sanding all oars ready for varnishing - the end is in sight ! Oh yeah - leathering, rowlocks  etc! All screws have been removed from the third pair of  planks, the frames shaped for plank four and it's now ready for bevelling and shaping of the gains or 'gerralds''.
