The Artful Sailor isn’t kidding about cheap sailmaker’s palms.
Utterly useless. A proper one is on order.
I did get the main panel of the ditty back cut out, with folds creased in, strike lines marked, twine threaded and waxed. The bench hook is even hooked. That’s about all I can do, other than cutting out the other pieces, but I’ll wait on that until I need them.
