Stretched Dory Model Progress #1

Here are the templates/molds/patterns for the dory, along with the first side, mostly cut with a hacksaw blade, which chipped off the high sternmost corner; you can see it sitting on top of the cut piece toward the rear. I think I'll use tin snips from now on, which leave a cleaner edge; there's a little piece cut from scrape with snips to the left on the bench beside the first cut side. Now I'll try using snips to finish the bottom edge of the first side...There:

So now I've cut the other side out with shears/snips - the cuts didn't come out as nice when cutting a clockwise turn along the outer plies' grain.
